Charlton Athletic winger Blackett-Taylor in talks with Derby County – South London News

Charlton Athletic winger Corey Blackett-Taylor is in talks with Derby County after they agreed a fee.

The South London Press understands that a deal in the region of £300,000 was accepted.

Blackett-Taylor is out of contract at the end of the season and did not play against Peterborough last weekend, at the end of the week when the Rams had a £250,000 bid knocked back by the South London club.

Derby manager Paul Warne has been an admirer of the former Tranmere and Aston Villa wideman since the summer, with Charlton also rejecting their attempts to sign the pacey wideman in the previous window.

The Addicks had made what they felt was a strong contract extension offer to Blackett-Taylor but it was made clear that he would not be putting pen to paper.

Charlton head coach Michael Appleton told our paper earlier this week that part of the reasoning behind switching to a wing-backs system against the Posh was taking a longer-term approach to the side’s set-up, with Tyreece Campbell also out of contract this summer.

Campbell, who has come through the club’s academy, has been offered new terms. Because he is under the age of 24 it means the Addicks would be liable for compensation, but that would be greatly reduced if he were to choose to move outside of England.



Everyone at the South London Press thanks you for your continued support.

Former Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has encouraged everyone in the country who can afford to do so to buy a newspaper, and told the Downing Street press briefing:

“A free country needs a free press, and the newspapers of our country are under significant financial pressure”.
