Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has said that he would have moved for Wigan Athletic’s summer signings Kieffer Moore and Jamal Lowe if he had the budget available to him.

Charlton Athletic were busy in the summer transfer window but had to be shrewd in their signings, bringing in the majority on free transfers due to the limited budget available to manager Lee Bowyer.

Now, speaking to the South London Press, Bowyer has said that he would have liked to move for striker Kieffer Moore and attacker Jamal Lowe, who both made moves to Wigan Athletic in the summer transfer window. Bowyer said:

“He [Moore] is one I would take – but we couldn’t afford him. I would have taken the pair of them but they were out of our price range.

“[Lowe] is a good player. He is in a different position now, playing behind the frontmen, and he looks good there. He is good in possession and has got pace. He is definitely going to be one of their main threats.”

Bowyer went on to preview this weekend’s clash with the Latics, praising manager Paul Cook and the work-rate in his side, adding that the first goal will be crucial this weekend.

“I think again that the first goal is going to be massive, so important. They are a hard-working side and their manager is experienced. He’s got a good group. They went up a couple of years ago and have stayed in the division because they are hard-working. We’re going to have to match that, for sure.”
