Failing to secure promotion could result in Charlton losing Lyle Taylor this summer

Failing to secure promotion could result in Charlton losing Lyle Taylor this summer

Finishing third place in the League One table to set up a play-off semi-final clash against Doncaster Rovers, it has been a good season for Charlton Athletic.

And one player who has certainly played his part in making all of the above possible is Lyle Taylor.

The 29-year-old, who was recently named Charlton’s 2018/19 Player of the Year, has been in superb form this campaign, scoring 21 goals in English football’s third tier.

Bearing that in mind, it would not be a surprise to see some Championship clubs come in for him in the summer.

And should Charlton not have that status next season, a move could be inevitable. All things considered, Taylor now looks to have outgrown the division he is currently playing in.

Having established himself as a top League One centre-forward, the Montserrat international will undoubtedly now want to test himself at a higher level in a league such as the Championship, be it with or without Charlton.

After losing Karlan Grant to Huddersfield Town earlier on in the season, the last thing Lee Bowyer will want if he is still at the helm next term is to see another key forward depart.

But if the Addicks fail to win promotion, being forced to part ways with Taylor could become a real possibility.
