Poyet to return to Addicks?


poyetA report in the Sevenoaks Chronicle suggests Charlton Athletic are believed to be close to re-signing former midfielder Diego Poyet on loan from West Ham. Poyet, who came through the Addicks’ academy system, left The Valley after winning their Player of the Year award. The youngster has been on loan at Milton Keynes Dons this season but has hardly featured and now Charlton are set to offer him first team football, as they bid to move away from the relegation zone.

Yesterday MK Dons manager, Karl Robinson revealed the midfielder is returning to West Ham as he is too similar in style to vice-captain Darren Potter. “As a combination they didn’t do too well together and he knows what Darren Potter means to my football club. It’s not fair on a young player to not give him many minutes and in time he will be a much better player than a lot in this league. He’s a tremendous young man.”

Poyet featured in five of our Europa League ties before joining the Dons on what was supposed to be a season long loan at MK Stadium. Poyet joined West Ham on 8th July 2014, signing a four-year contract with West Ham after reaching a settlement for compensation with Charlton.

    Thought I read today that once a year long loan had been done he could not come back plus last year did Zarate not have to stay at OPR because he had played for 2 clubs already or does playing in Europe not count ?
    Not that concerned but I rate Poyet and next year I think he will take Songs place in the squad,
    Not sure the Addicks is the best place for him they are only interested in the OS financial situation,prefer to see him with a good side time Brighton where he can play with talent
