Update emerges on Charlton Athletic star’s future amid Premier League interest

According to reporter Darren Witcoop, Charlton Athletic striker Miles Leaburn’s injury will certainly put any potential transfer on hold until next summer.

Charlton Athletic striker Leaburn has attracted interest from several clubs following his eye-catching debut at The Valley. He made his first-team debut last season and has recently been linked with Chelsea and Brentford.

This comes on the heels of a season-high seven goals and three assists in 18 games across all competitions. However, Leaburn is set to miss time after undergoing hamstring surgery, which will keep him out until late in the season.

Now, according to Witcoop of X, any potential winter trade for the Addicks starlet has been put on hold.

He claims that due to the injury, interest has waned, with Brentford among those interested in a January transfer. He may now have to wait until next summer if he wants to make a huge move from Charlton Athletic and move up the leagues.

Leaburn appears to be destined for a promotion from League One at some time in the future, but with this injury keeping him out, he’ll have to wait a little longer. It also makes sense, because bringing in a player who will be out for the foreseeable future means he won’t be able to make an immediate impact at his next stop.

Charlton Athletic will be expecting to get a good price for Leaburn, who has a contract until 2025.

He’s already shown he can be a deadly presence in the senior game, despite being only 20 years old. Leaburn has 20 goals and six assists in 58 games for the Addicks’ first-team and offers a strong option at the top of the pitch, standing at 196cm tall.
