Charlton fight to hold on to Luke Young

The Addicks are making a spirited fight to hold on to captain Luke Young in the face of a £3.8m bid from West Ham. Richard Murray has described as 'lucrative' the new three year contract offered to the skipper when he still has two years to run on his existing contract. According to the Currant Bun this would put Young on 25k a week on a par with the sum they claim is earned by Jason Euell. Iain Dowie has reassured Young that he has very much part of his plans.

Whether this will be enough remains to be seen. This blog heard some months ago from a source close to Young that a departure was in the offing. He may well think that his England career would prosper at a bigger club. Getting rid of the 'little Charlton' label continues to be a Catch-22.
