Charlton Athletic must secure the futures of these players ahead of 2024

Despite an erratic 2023/24 season, Charlton Athletic are still in a good position to make a play-off challenge.
Charlton Athletic are 11th in League One when the latest international break begins. The Addicks’ form has been hit and miss, but they are still only five points behind the top six after 16 games in the third division.

The Addicks will lose several key players when their contracts expire next year. Michael Appleton’s tenure is still in its early stages, but he should have a good sense of who figures in his long-term ambitions by now.

With that said, here are three players whose futures Charlton Athletic must guarantee ahead of 2024…

Corey Blackett-Taylor

Back in September, Blackett-Taylor was connected with Championship clubs Swansea City and Hull City. The Charlton Athletic winger has gone on to have one of his best prolific seasons to date, with five goals and six assists in 16 league appearances.

Blackett-Taylor, like Dobson, will pique curiosity if his status remains unresolved in January. With his contract expiring in 2024, keeping him should be a top priority.

Miles Leaburn

Leaburn, unlike Dobson and Blackett-Taylor, has a contract until the summer of 2025. That means there is no imminent concern of losing him on the cheap, but with interest from higher-level clubs, Charlton Athletic must persuade him to sign an extension as well.

The 19-year-old is one of the EFL’s greatest attacking talents, and if there are any questions about his future, it won’t be long before clubs begin to circle Leaburn.

George Dobson

Dobson, who is 26 today, is an important member of Charlton Athletic’s squad. An extension option was exercised last year, but it only keeps him on board until next summer, and the Addicks must do all possible to retain him on board for the long term.

If he reaches the final six months of his contract in the New Year, the midfielder will almost certainly attract interest from higher divisions or clubs at the top of League One.
