It was reported in the media yesterday that former Birmingham City striker Lee Novak could be the subject of interest from Charlton Athletic and new manager Russell Slade.

Following relegation to League One last season, the South London Press suggest that with Novak’s form and performances for Chesterfield last season – where he spent time out on loan with them – he’s been identified by Slade as the man to boost our forward line ahead of the coming 2016/17 campaign.

The 27 year old did only appear once for Birmingham last season – Capital One Cup against Bristol Rovers – but whilst with Chesterfield he found his scoring boots once more, finding the net 15 times in 38 appearances including hitting a hattrick in their seven one victory over Shrewsbury Town.

Novak was released by Birmingham this summer as they decided against offering him a new deal, so he is available as a free agent, but it’s suggested there are a few clubs yet to show their hand and declare their interest in him as well.

He certainly knows where the net is, in time with Huddersfield Town, Birmingham and Chesterfield he boasts 193 starts, with a further 86 from the bench, with a goal return of 69.
