Lyle Taylor – Clarets Join the Race to sign Charlton Striker
Burnley are said to be interested in Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor, the prolific centre forward is out of contract this summer at the Valley and is expected to leave the addicks on a free transfer.
There are a number of clubs weighing up there options and are interested in signing him including Sunderland, Middlesborough, Crystal Palace, AFC Bournemouth, Stoke City and Preston North End. Charlton Athletic Lee Bowyer has already admitted his star striker could leave the club this summer.
The Sky Bet Championship squads returned to small group training at the start of last week and that will step up over the coming weeks, with the second tier aiming to restart their campaign around the same time as the Premier League.
Speaking about his main striker Lee Bowyer said, “We’ve got Lyle Taylor and his contract finishes on the 30th June, he will probably go somewhere else and will earn more money than he’s got in his career. It could make him for the rest of his life, is he going to put that in jeopardy with the injury risk before a dream move? I don’t think so.
He’s our main striker and his goals win us games, as a free agent he’ll be getting good offers and whatever he gets he deserves. He has done really well for us but that’s the reality of the situation.”
