Bowyer offers glimmer of Yuletide joy

Lee Bowyer has said that Charlton will be allowed to bring in a striker in the January transfer window, regardless of whether the purchase of the club is approved by the EFL. Fans have suggested on social media that we need an additional midfielder and defender as well: Go ahead for striker

Bowyer explained: 'Loans is a bit easier sometimes [to get in earlier] and we’re in contact already with clubs about strikers. Matt is saying to us we have the go ahead to bring in another striker, but he ain’t paying a bill yet – we’ll have to go through Roland [Duchatelet, current owner] as well. Obviously Roland has to okay it but Matt is okay for the long term.'

Beram Kayal has spent most of his loan spell at Charlton in the well patronised Sparrows Lane treatment room and looks set to return to the seaside. Jonathan Leko may also be returned to the Baggies if his injury is serious, which looks to be the case: Goodbye to loan players

Charlton fans have not seen enough of Kayal to make even an ill considered judgment. Leko is evidently a mercurial player with talent that is displayed in bursts. When he is good, he is very good; and when he is bad, he is very bad.
