The new Charlton Athletic owners have withdrawn their contract offer to Lyle Taylor, according to London News Online.
Taylor has already been linked with moves to several clubs – including Sheffield Wednesday – after entering the final six months of his existing deal.
And his chances of a January transfer appear to be increasing, with LNO reporting that Charlton will now consider any bids they receive for the soon-to-be 30-year-old this month.
It is claimed that Taylor, who has scored or made eight goals in 13 games for the Addicks this season, was offered a lucrative contract until June 2020, which improved his basic salary and included a loyalty bonus, signing-on fee and the option of year’s extension.
But he is said to have missed the deadline to respond to East Street Investments, the company that acquired Charlton from Roland Duchatelet earlier this month.
The Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has suggested that any player arriving at Hillsborough in January will be doing so on loan.
And it remains to be seen whether the Taylor development will alter the Owls’ thinking.
Wednesday are one of three Championship clubs reportedly awaiting a decision from the Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, who will leave the Emirates on another temporary deal this month.
It is claimed that Nketiah’s decision could arrive as early as today (Tuesday).
