Many reports of late have been saying that Charlton star striker Karlan Grant is being linked with moves away to teams such as Rangers, Millwall and Huddersfield. The 14-goal man has been attracting interest from bigger clubs and it is not hard to see why, but I really do not think he is going to be leaving.

If we look at the bigger picture here, Karlan Grant is real talent although he is not at the top his level yet, we can see that there are things he needs to improve on, but for the most part, he has been fantastic this season. After his 94th minute winner against Accrington Stanley, I’m sure he could see how much it means to all of us to have an academy graduate doing this well in front of goal for us.

Once we get him penned on this new contract that is currently being negotiated and I’m sure it will go through, the amount of relief that will come off us Charlton fans will be amazing because losing someone like that at this point of the season could prove to be the decider in what happens to us this campaign. The team’s morale right now is sky high and Lyle Taylor even pleaded a while back to the owner that no one can be sold because of the togetherness that is in this squad and Taylor is at the forefront of that togetherness.

I think it’s very unlikely that Grant will leave us, especially after we kept faith in him after his first couple seasons and after a certain incident that occurred last summer, don’t worry I know he’s innocent but many teams would have let him go at the first sign of this news. Back on to more important matters, Karlan is going nowhere I know it and if he did it would be similar to the Scott Parker situation, left us when we really needed him. So, if he is going to leave he won’t do it this window at least I think, he wants promotion and if he sticks with us that’s what we’re going to get!
