Charlton Athletic have recalled Albie Morgan from his loan spell at Ebbsfleet United.

The Addicks have decided to bring the young midfielder back to the Valley, as announced by their official club website.

Ebbsfleet are open to bringing him back to Stonebridge Road at another stage of this season.

Morgan, who is 19 years-old, made five appearances for the National League side and chipped in with one goals.

The Fleet boss Kevin Watson has confirmed he would re-sign him and their website: “Albie has thoroughly enjoyed his time with us and said he’d come back in a heartbeat if the opportunity presented itself or Charlton let him out again but it’s out of our hands and we thank Charlton for all they’ve done in letting us get him in on loan in the first place.”

Ebbsfleet initially signed the youngster on a one-month loan which was extended a couple of weeks ago until January, however, injuries to Lyle Taylor, Johnny Williams, Sam Field, Lewis Page and Jake Forster-Caskey have meant Charlton have had to cancel the deal.

The Kent-born midfielder is a product of the Addicks’ academy and made his first team debut for the London side in an EFL Cup tie against AFC Wimbledon in September last year.

Morgan went on to make 16 appearances for Lee Bowyer’s side in all competitions last season, eight of which came in the league, as they gained promotion from League One.
