Charlton wary of recall clause in Sordell contract
WANDERERS could decide to bring Marvin Sordell back to the Reebok in January, according to Charlton boss Chris Powell.
The striker was shipped out to the Valley earlier this month in order to make space for Andre Moritz in the Whites’ playing budget, but had a clause inserted in his contract that could see him return in the new year.
Powell fears Dougie Freedman could choose to bring the former England Under-21 international back into the camp if he starts firing the Addicks up the table.
“Obviously it is something I would do because we are a competitor, so of course if we are ahead of them and he is scoring goals then they’d call him back,” he said. “That’s just what any team and manager would do. Unfortunately we couldn’t get that clause out but we will have to deal with that.
“That’s the only real drawback from it but while he is here we want him to compete, play and ultimately score goals because that is what he is about.”
Sordell, pictured, has yet to hit the target in three appearances for Charlton but Powell believes his first goal will not be far away as the 22-year-old settles at his new club.
“Like any striker you want to get your first goal to show people you can score goals and take it from there,” The Valley chief added.
“He is getting used to us, he is getting used to people’s names and of course you are looking for him to get on the goal trail as soon as possible.”
