Charlton Athletic boss Karl Robinson has revealed that the Addicks will not extend the stay of Rangers striker Joe Dodoo beyond the loan deadline in January 1st.
Dodoo joined Charlton on loan in the summer but has failed to make an impact for the League One side and as a result, he is going to be sent back to Scotland after the loan period ends.
The 22-year-old forward has been almost anonymous on the pitch since joining Charlton and has made very little impact during his time at the Valley, which led manager Karl Robinson to reconsider his decision to extend the striker’s stay beyond January 1st.
Speaking in an interview, Robinson told, “It is what it is. Sometimes with loans – whether it’s my fault – possibly, they don’t always hit the ground the way you expect things to happen.
“There’s so many fundamental reasons for that. I would never be disrespectful to people. He would have started [at Swansea in the Checkatrade]but he was injured.”
While subtle, these quotes by Robinson clearly reflects the regret he feels over the decision to sign Dodoo and the 22-year-old also most likely not look to extend his stay in League One beyond his loan period.
