Charlton boss Karl Robinson has played down links to Stevenage striker Matthew Godden.

A national newspaper reported the Addicks were considering a £1.5m bid for the former Ebbsfleet frontman.

Tony Watt is Charlton’s only fit and available striker with Josh Magennis and Lee Novak injured and suspended, respectively.

Robinson has said he wants to bring in another striker, but poured cold water on any potential bid for Godden, who scored 21 goals for Stevenage in League Two last term.

He said: “He’s someone I think every club has looked at but no. They know we’ve liked him in the past and we’ve liked watching him play and he scores goals. That’s as far as it’s gone.

“There will be certain people that want to stir a transfer rumour - that only ever increases the value of the player - especially when Charlton get involved. 

“They can add a few one hundred thousand [pounds] on. We’re not a bad team to throw out there to say we are looking to bring him in. But we’ve not made an offer.”
