ZZ: I'm off if Addicks go down

Chinese international midfielder Zheng Zhi has unsurprisingly revealed he will not stay at The Valley if Charlton are relegated to the Championship. Player of the Month in March, the 26-year-old is currently on loan until July from Shandong Luneng and had previously expressed his desire to earn a permanent deal with the Addicks.

'If Charlton are relegated, I won't stay,' he told Goal China. Zheng dismissed claims that he is struggling to handle the pressure of a relegation battle in the Premiership after guiding Shandong to the Chinese Super League title last year.

'The pressure isn't so bad. As a player you're always under pressure,' he added. 'I had pressure in China, so this is nothing new. Though, obviously, things are more intense here in the Premiership."
