Charlton are yet to hold talks with Ahmed Kashi over a new deal.

The midfield enforcer, whose contract expires next summer, has endured two injury-hit campaigns since joining the Addicks in 2015.

But he returned to action in pre-season and has been in fine form this term, starting every league game.

Charlton boss Karl Robinson told News Shopper: “We said to Ahmed Kashi in the summer that he’s got to come back, play and focus on what we’re trying to achieve.

“If it’s successful, we’ll sit down and have a conversation about what we want to do with future years.

“At this moment in time, Ahmed Kashi is just focused on playing for Charlton Athletic.”

Kashi, Naby Sarr, Patrick Bauer and academy graduate Anfernee Dijksteel are the only foreign players left in Charlton’s first-team following a summer clear-out.

Jorge Teixeira and Cristian Ceballos made permanent moves away from the Valley, while Igor Vetokele was loaned to Sint-Truiden.

Charlton fans claimed some of the club’s foreign players didn't care about suffering relegation from the Championship two years ago.

But Robinson believes that’s different now.

He added: “Ahmed Kashi cares just as much as one of our British players.

“Some people think that their passion and desire is slightly lesser because they're not from this country and they've not got great tradition in what we believe in.

“All the foreign players we have in our squad, Patrick Bauer, Naby Sarr, Ahmed Kashi, Anfernee Dijksteel, they're certainly enjoying life in League One.

“They’re seeing a different side to it. They're understanding the complex nature in the amount games we play, the travelling we have to do and the expectations to play for Charlton Athletic at this level.

“They’re very proud people. One thing I’m so happy with is the foreign players have really bought into the culture and desire of the club.”
