9 now out on loan
In case you missed it Nathan Ashton today joined Millwall on loan
for the rest of the season. I can only assume if Pards didn't opt to play him at Watford when both Thatcher and HH were out, that he doesn't feel the need for him. Dowie gave the young left back his only start in the Carling Cup at home to Carlisle but with fellow left back Youga on loan at Bradford it must mean that both Hreidarsson and Thatcher are at least fit.
Today also saw Myles Weston and James Walker move to League Two side Notts County
managed by old rambo himself Steve Thompson. Jason Lee is the club's current top goalscorer with 15 goals as County chase a play-off place.
This now means that we have 9 players out on loan - Kishishev at Leeds
and Lloyd Sam at Southend
both deep in the Championship relegation battle, Jonathan Fortune impressing at Stoke
, Simon Walton, who has never even appeared in a Charlton first team squad, either suspended or on the bench at Cardiff
, Kelly Youga at Bradford
and Alistair John with the league's bottom club Torquay
Whatever league we end up in next season, expect to see some big changes in personnel with 9 players' contracts up in the summer including Matt Holland, Bryan Hughes (whose house is up for sale I noticed last time I was home), Hasselbaink, HH, El Khak and Myhre, who has already signed a pre-contract agreement with Viking in Norway
. Remembering also that Song and Carson are on loan to us and there will be an almighty scramble for Darren Bent once our fate is decided.
