‘Zero pressure’ – Charlton boss Nathan Jones on state of play surrounding Huddersfield target Alfie May

Charlton Athletic manager Nathan Jones says he is under “zero pressure” to sell any of his players.

Huddersfield Town had a bid rejected for Addicks striker Alfie May but the indications were at the time that they would come back in for League One’s top scorer last season.

May scored 23 league goals in the previous campaign.

Jones was asked about the forward’s future at a Valley function this morning – taking the microphone after the 2024-25 League One fixtures were announced.

The Welshman, speaking to supporters in attendance, said: “What I will tell you is that there is zero pressure for me to sell or to let go any footballer at this football club – whether that is financial or a football decision. There is zero pressure.

“So any decision we make as a football club will be so that we come out of this window categorically stronger than when we went into it.

“What you have got to do is trust us on those decisions.

“I’ve been at clubs, Luton for example, where I got pelleted for letting some people go but at the end of the day, they ended up in the Premier League.

“Alfie is really important to what we do, at this point in time, and he has a real value to us. But what we have to think about, in every single decision – whether it is Alfie May, George Dobson or whether it is Michael Hector, whoever it is, that when we go into a window we are at this level and when we come out of it we have to be significantly higher.

“And I promise you, if you trust us, that is what we will do.”
