Manager Karl Robinson has said that an agreement with Chelsea for Jay Dasilva to rejoin Charlton on a season long loan is close to being done.

The 19 year old teenager moved to The Valley last January and made ten appearances in the second half of the campaign following his debut as a substitute against Millwall.

Having impressed in that spell Robinson is keen to see him rejoin for the coming year and although that’s close to happening, the fact he’s part of England’s Under 19 squad which is taking part in the European Championships in Georgia has caused some delays.

Dasilva will skipper Keith Downing’s side and they kick off their campaign against Bulgaria on Monday before facing Holland and Germany on July 6 and 9 respectively.

London News Online briefly quote the gaffer as saying about the deal.

‘We`re very close to an agreement. We`ve worked very hard on that with Chelsea in the last few weeks.’
