Charlton Athletic interested in loan swoop for Middlesbrough forward Browne – League One trio also keen

According to a report from Football Insider, Charlton Athletic are considering a loan move for Middlesbrough forward Marcus Browne this January, with League One trio Oxford United, Coventry City and Doncaster Rovers also said keen on the Boro summer signing.

Attacker Marcus Browne only joined Middlesbrough in the summer transfer window, signing on a permanent basis from Premier League side West Ham. However, with the January transfer window now underway, Browne has been linked with a move away from the Riverside Stadium.

With Boro signing Lukas Nmecha and Patrick Roberts to bolster Jonathan Woodgate’s attacking options, it has been reported that Charlton Athletic could look to sign Browne on loan for the remainder of the season, with Football Insider saying that his first-team chances could now be limited with Boro.

League One trio Oxford United, Coventry City and Doncaster Rovers have also been credited with interest in Browne this winter. While Woodgate will have a decision to make over Browne’s immediate future at the club, it is stated that the club will not be allowing him to leave on a permanent basis.

As for Charlton, they are keen to bolster their squad this winter having struggled with injuries in the first half of the campaign, with Lee Bowyer keen to add some new faces in a number of areas. Each of Oxford United, Coventry City and Doncaster Rovers are also hoping to add to their squads to boost their hopes of winning promotion to the Championship come the end of the season.

So far this season, Browne has made 14 appearances for Boro’s first team, also playing twice in the Premier League 2 for the club’s Under-23s. He is yet to provide an assist or score a goal, so it will be interesting to see what Boro’s stance is over the reported interest in his services with Nmecha and Roberts now at the club.
