'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Kermo Felt Pushed Out

Yann Kermorgant became a surprise exit from Charlton last month when he moved on ahead of the transfer window closing when he left for Bournemouth.

The striker, in an interview with the South London Press, wanted to make it clear that he didn't leave Charlton for Bournemouth down to money. He says he had to do what was right for himself and his family and they offered him the kind of deal that Charlton weren't.

In fact he says that he felt pushed out of the Valley and believes that they didn't try to hard to keep him.

He said: 'I don't want people to think I have gone for the money - it is so far from that.

'I've always said I couldn't think of leaving Charlton, only for a deal I couldn't refuse. I am 32 and have to do the best for my family but that was not the case between Bournemouth and Charlton. I've not left for the money. It is because I feel they have pushed me to the exit.

'I think they accepted the first bid from Bournemouth. That is not the way to do it when you really want to keep a player.

'For me the biggest thing is the way it happened. They did nothing special to keep me.'

A new deal was something that had been spoken about, or looked for, but it never came for him and he worries about the 'direction the club was going' under new ownership, and questioned if Chris Powell was the one making deals happen?

Negotiations on a new contract went as far as his proposal being put to the club, they turned this down before agreeing to a new two-year contract but couldn't agree terms and these weren't negotiated then the next thing he knew Bournemouth's offer came in and he was eventually sold on deadline day.
