Having missed the majority of last season through injury, the EFL insider reckons that Charlton would be a good move for Dujon Sterling to get his career back on track.
The Chelsea youngster was a regular for Coventry in League One in 2018-2019, although the right-back’s previous two seasons have halted his development.
12 months later, Sterling spent the campaign with Wigan, featuring just eight times, before failing to play a single first-team match last season – with his only game-time coming for Chelsea Under-23s.
However, Sterling is now back fit, and according to Football.London, has impressed Thomas Tuchel and has been promoted to gain valuable experience by training with Chelsea’s first-team in pre-season.
Sterling will be hoping to continue catching the German’s eye ahead of the new Premier League season, but a third EFL loan spell could be the most likely next step for the 21-year-old as he continues his development.
Charlton already have two experienced right-backs in Adam Matthews and Chris Gunter, but the EFL spy exclusively told Football FanCast that a move to The Valley could get Sterling’s career on track:
“Dujon Sterling of Chelsea would also fit the bill after a bad injury, and he still needs game time before moving on again.
“He needs to hit the ground running with this move after he was hammered a bit over the last season. He’s attack-minded and will excite fans.”
