NI striker Conor Washington is on his way out of Charlton

Charlton Athletic have confirmed that Northern Ireland striker Conor Washington will not be offered a new contract.

The frontman is a free agent this summer and was their second highest goalscorer at The Valley last season with 11 goals.

Johnnie Jackson had been keen to secure Washington on new terms, but his departure at the start of last week cast extra doubt on the player’s future.

The 29-year-old signed for the Addicks in August 2020 from Hearts and netted 22 goals in 56 League One starts.

He played 75 minutes of the 4-0 loss to Ipswich Town on April 30 in the final fixture of the campaign.

Another Northern Ireland striker, Kyle Lafferty, is weighing up a new contract at Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, Luke Turner could be set to leave Cliftonville and join Premier League hopefuls Nottingham Forest.

The Aberdeen centre-back, who shone in the Reds defence while on loan this season, could link up with Forest’s Under-23 squad.

After winning the N Football Awards Young Player of the Year prize, the teenage Dubliner may be leaving Solitude with Forest keen to sign him.

Turner will be exiting Pittodrie and Forest, who are in the EFL Championship play-offs, are keen to recruit the former Shamrock Rovers academy graduate.
