Academy graduate Karlan Grant has been with Charlton since the age of 12 and made the step up to the senior ranks for the first time in 2014.
After bouncing between the U23s and first-team over the next few seasons, he received more opportunities last term and enjoyed a hot scoring streak in late November/early December, netting in three successive games including a dramatic equaliser at the death against Peterborough United at The Valley.
Eager to continue his development, he was sent on loan to League Two with Crawley Town where he excelled, scoring a hugely impressive nine goals in 15 games and proving he was ready for regular involvement in League One this season.
He returned this summer as one of Lee Bowyer’s key attacking men, starting in the opening-day trip to Sunderland and winning the penalty which put his side in front.
At the age of 20, he already has 70 senior Charlton appearances under his belt, albeit most as sub, but he will be identifying 2018/19 as the season where he makes his starting impact.
