Marvin Sordell's loan has a January recall clause

Ian Walton

There were a lot of questions that surrounded Marvin Sordell's loan to Charlton Athletic for the whole of the 2013/14 season but none were more pressing than those pressing about the length of time that the Bolton striker would be away. A year away from the Reebok Stadium with the potential to help one of the Trotters' Championship rivals. Thus far, Marvin Sordell has not scored a single goal for Charlton Athletic but the potential is there.

With that said, Addicks manager, Chris Powell, has confirmed that Wanderers have included a contingency plan into the Sordell deal. Should Sordell start scoring and pushing Charlton up the table, Bolton Wanderers can recall what would be a high-flying striker to not only hamper an opponent's progress but also potentially boost their own striker corps.

Speaking in his pre-Barnsley press conference, Chris Powell answered a question regarding whether or not Sordell had the rumored recall clause:

"Yes they do. That is the only drawback but obviously it is something I would do because we are a competitor, so of course if we are ahead of them and he is scoring goals then they'd call him back.

"That's just what any team and manager would do.

"Unfortunately we couldn't get that clause out but we will have to deal with that.

"That's the only real drawback from it but while he is here we want him to compete, play and ultimately score goals because that is what he is about."

Powell also said that Sordell just needs a bit of a confidence boost to really get in amongst the goals:

"He just needs a goal.

"Yann has got his goal, he is up and running.

"Simon Church got a couple of goals, he is up and running.

"Like any striker you want to get your first goal to show people you can score goals and take it from there.

"He is getting used to us, he is getting used to people's names and of course you are looking for him to get on the goal trail as soon as possible."
