Charlton boss on whether former Blackpool loanee could be on transfer move again

Charlton Athletic have had no bids for Charlie Kirk in the summer transfer window, with manager Ben Garner stating how happy he is to work with the winger.

The 24-year-old was signed from Crewe for around £500,000 before the start of the previous campaign but struggled to settle and was loaned to Blackpool in January.

But Kirk, who also had to cope with the passing of his father not long before he arrived in SE7, has started Charlton’s last four League One matches and opened his scoring account for them against Plymouth.

Asked if he expected the attacker to stay with the South Londoners, Garner told the South London Press: “Yeah, as things stand. If a club comes in and offers a million pound for Charlie Kirk on Monday then they might be coming to me with that proposition.

“At the moment there hasn’t been any offers for him. He’s done really well.

“A great response from last season – he had a difficult time on and off the pitch. He’s a really good character and really likeable in the squad. He’s got great ability and I think he’s getting better and better each week.

“I’m really enjoying working with him and also seeing him develop and grow. I still think there is a lot more to come from Charlie Kirk as well.”
