Stockley in. Bogle out?

The number 9 shirt has finally been filled after Preston’s Jayden Stockley signed on loan for the rest of the season.

Stockley made an impression last year at The Valley, but this season has found starting hard at Preston with Tom Barkhuizen, Scott Sinclair and Sean Maguire ahead of him and recently they added Ched Evans as well.

The 6′ 2″ Stockley has started four games and been involved a lot from the bench until recently when it became clear that manager Alex Neil would allow him to move on loan. Sunderland and Bristol Rovers were two of a four clubs in for him, but between Steve Gallen’s persistence and Lee Bowyer’s relationship with Peter Ridsdale, the Addicks won the day.

Due to the salary cap a deal with the PNE owner also had to be made to shelter us from Stockley’s £7,000 wages. It is said that the loan deal has an agreement for us to sign him permanently in the summer.

Stockley came through Bournemouth’s academy but made his goalscoring name over two season’s at Exeter City.

He’s a big lad and should be a good foil for Aneke, Schwartz and Washington but you have to wonder where Omar Bogle now fits in, and the word is that Charlton will try to offload Bogle before the end of the month.

Stockley should see some sort of action tomorrow and will be in the squad alongside Ben Watson and Albie Morgan.

    I’ve heard it said Grimsby Town fans love Bogle. Gallen should offer him to them on a free. If our luck is in? that’ll be the last we see of him.

    Omar Bogle has not offered Charlton much with regards to goals scored in the time that he has been with us. He obviously does have goals in his locker and a move elsewhere might prove dividends for him. Sadly for Omar he has missed a few sitters which did not go un-noticed by the Charlton hierarchy. Jayden Stockley could be the main man for grabbing our goals alongside Chucks or Schwartz. Looking forward to today’s game as the Peterborough result left me feeling rather drained. Will Pearsey play in defence, that is the position that it is letting us down at the moment. Come on you Addicks.

    I liked Stockley when he was with Exeter a couple of years ago and I think his signing is a positive move but I fear promotion is no longer a realistic target following poor results over the last 10 games. If by mid March we are out of the running Bowyer should get some first team experience into youngsters such as Vennings, Mingi Barker, Quitirna and Henry.

    Stockley in/Bogle out looks a good swap-physically they are similar and offer the same skill – holding the ball up etc.

    Bogle is dare I say it a Josh Parker – hardworking and a team-player, he gets in the right positions but a forward has to score and/or create goals and he just hasn’t done it. There are rumours that weare trying to sign an attacking midfielder – Joel Randall and Antony Evans (the latter is an Everton academy product who is currently at Paderborn but isn’t getting game time.
