CHARLTON are interested in a permanent deal for Cherries midfielder Nnamdi Ofoborh, according to London News Online.

The 21-year-old, whose contract expires at Vitality Stadium in the summer, has been left out of boss Jason Tindall’s past three matchday squads.

And the media outlet claims Lee Bowyer’s side, who are currently sixth in League One, are interested in swooping for the Nigeria under-20 international.

Speaking with the Daily Echo last week, Tindall insisted Ofoborh’s future would be in his own hands.

He added: “If Nnamdi wants to stay at the football club, it is going to be down to him.

“He’s certainly a player we like and we want to keep. It then becomes the player’s decision whether he wants to stay at the football club or not.”

Ofoborh played 25 times in all competitions for Wycombe last season, helping the Chairboys gain promotion via the League One play-off final.

Commenting on his contract situation to the Daily Echo earlier this month, the midfielder added: “I’m not really focused on the contract situation side of football.

“I just focus on what I can do and I can do on the pitch and I leave the rest of it to my agent. Obviously, the people are going to take care of that.

“I’m a footballer first and I don’t really focus on things off the pitch so for me personally, I’m just focused on ball and improving every day in training and being happy.”
