George Lapslie to make move permanent
According the Rich Cawley, Charlton have cleared the way for George Lasplie to make his move to Mansfield Town permanent. There will be no fee.
George has really impressed at The Stags playing in 16 league and cup games scoring 5 from a defensive midfield position.
It’ll be sad to see him go, and I don’t know if he’d get ahead of the midfielders Bow has at his disposal, but for sure we miss his energy, and perhaps more importantly his ability to come on near the end of games to help preserve point(s). Would I rather a Lapslie than a Gilbey right now? I’d say yes.
The 23-year old joined the Addicks as a 10-year old, and he absolutely deserves his chance to play regularly, and there is no harm in going backwards to move forwards, and that could be at Mansfield under Nigel Clough.
Lapslie’s current contract expires in June, and his departure will give that suffocating salary cap more wriggle room.
