Charlton manager Lee Bowyer confirms attacker is Cardiff bound

Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has confirmed that Jonny Williams is set to have a medical at Cardiff City.

A fee – reported to be £200,000 – has been agreed for the Wales international, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Bowyer said: “A couple of days ago it[a deal] started.

“One of the things I’ll really miss is that smile every morning, he is a lovely lad. He has been great around the place and everyone is going to miss him.

“He’s only got a little bit left on his contract and this is the right thing for the club. It is a good deal for the club – and Jonny wanted to go there.

“Jonny is another one who came in dead and buried – he was playing U23s at Palace – but came here, played games and got back into the Wales side. He is another one who moves on and has improved as a player under us. The list is bloody endless – of people doing well and moving on.

“Everyone loved him at the club. I don’t think a person in the world could meet Jonny and not say he is a lovely fella.”

One thought on “Charlton manager Lee Bowyer confirms attacker is Cardiff bound

  • A great character and I will never forget that in this age of money grabbing individuals, Jonny took a pay cut to come to Charlton and get the chance to play the game he loves on a regular basis. He earned my respect with that. A talented footballer, but as many have already said, too easily knocked off the ball and subject to numerous injuries. Always exciting to watch on the ball, but I feel never totally delivered the expected goods. He will be missed, but I think he can be replaced. I certainly wish him well at Cardiff and as Lee commented, he joins the ever growing band of players that have flourished at Charlton and then have moved on. Good luck Jonny !
