REPORT: Charlton Athletic Accept Three Championship Bids for Alfie Doughty

Alfie Doughty Championship

Alfie Doughty could soon be playing in the Championship after reports claimed that three second-tier sides have had bids accepted for the player.

Three Championship Teams Have Alfie Doughty Bids Accepted

Player Has Impressed For Charlton

The 21-year old has impressed many since breaking into the Charlton Athletic first-team last season and with the Addicks relegated to League One for this campaign (and with the man himself continuing to impress in the third tier) it has led to much interest in his signature.

Championship Side Stoke are Reportedly Interested in Alfie Doughty

One of the most notable named teams that reportedly want to sign Doughty is Stoke City. The club have remained keen to sign him this month and could be one of the sides that have now had a bid accepted for the youngster.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer seemed resigned to losing the talented Englishman as he told London News Online: “There are three Championship sides that we have agreed terms with. I expect Alfie will speak to all three of them. I think he should.

“Don’t just make a rash decision – he should speak to all three. He’s been really good. He’s not been knocking on the door.

“But this is football – these are things you can’t control.”

First Played for Bromley

Doughty’s first taste of regular footballing action came during a spell at Bromley as a 19-year old. Featuring eight times for the National League side, he then returned back to Charlton with some whole new experiences under his belt as a footballer.

After the club recalled Doughty,  they threw him straight into first-team action for them. Playing 29 times for the Addicks last season, he could only watch on as his side were relegated back to the third tier of English football.

Now in League One, he’s made seven starts so far this campaign. But he suffered an injury sidelining him until February – meaning that he might have already played his last game as a Charlton player.
