Lee Bowyer thinks Krystian Bielik should remain with Charlton and keep learning for the rest of the season, even though he admits that the defender has a recall clause in his contract.
Arsenal sent Bielik on a season-long loan to Charlton at the start of the campaign. At the time, the move made a lot of sense, considering the 20-year-old was only getting into the u23 team in North London, and he didn’t seem to have any place in Unai Emery’s plans.
However, since then he’s had a strong first half of the season, and Arsenal have had a lot of problems with injuries to defenders. As a result, there’s some talk of a possible recall for the centre-back, and Charlton manager Lee Bowyer admitted the clause does exist.
“All the clubs now they have a clause in there that, if they want to call them back, they can,” Bowyer confirmed. “But, again, why would you call him back and play him in under-23s football when he can be out there playing against men and learning? Because that’s what he’s doing.
