Charlton Athletic’s Lyle Taylor is being urged to sign a new contract amid transfer interest from Premier League clubs.

The 29-year-old, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has been linked with a move to a host of top flight clubs, including Sheffield United, Norwich City and Burnley.

Championship clubs such as Brentford, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City have also expressed interest in Taylor but according to TEAMTalk, Charlton are doing everything they can to convince him to stay at The Valley.

Acceding to reports, the London club are keen for Taylor to sign a new contract and  with new owners taking over, boss Lee Boweyr hopes more money will be laid on the table to convince Taylor to stay at Charlton.

Previously a big money offer would not have been financially viable but new chairman Matt Southall wants to tie the ex-Wimbledon striker down to a new, improved long term deal.

Taylor joined Charlton last year after a prolific spell at Wimbledon where he became the club’s record Football League goal scorer with 44 strikes for the Dons.

Since arriving at Charlton, Taylor has scored 30 goals and helped the club achieve promotion back to the second tier of English football in the 2018/19 season.
