All Under Control

All Under Control

Chris Powell has no concerns about the contracts that his players are, or aren't on. The Charlton boss, as quoted in The South London Press, feels he has everything "under control."

As many as 10 players are out of contract this summer with several others entering into the final year of their existing deals.

Weighing up who stays and who goes is something he is doing and Powell is relaxed about things, he said: 'I'm in constant dialogue with the owner and people that run the club. I've got to make decisions but also make sure I'm able to do business.

'I need to make sure I'm able to move on players or whether I have to carry on with the squad I've got.

'I'm sure there are stories about certain players but it is all being dealt with. We're fine - we've got no real worries on our major players.

'I know some have got a year to go and that's another area we have to make sure we move on.
"All the young players are fine, Callum Harriott will progress with us. So there is no problem there.'

Those out of contract this summer include Ricardo Fuller, Bradley Wright-Phillips, Matt Taylor, Scott Wagstaff, Dorian Dervite and Salim Kerkar. Some aren't even likely to be offered new deals, others will. Players such as Ben Hamer, Johnnie Jackson and Yann Kermorgant are moving into the final year of their contracts, so negotiations will begin with these players in due course.

Powell knows what he's doing, he'll keep who he wants to keep and let those that he doesn't go. As far as those that decide to go elsewhere are concerned that's the way it goes and he will replace them too as no one is irreplaceable
