There is no recall option in Karlan Ahearne-Grant’s loan deal.

The Charlton forward is on loan with League Two side Crawley until the end of the season.

Ahearne-Grant scored an impressive solo goal on his debut, which saw Charlton manager Karl Robinson signal the importance of his temporary spell away from SE7.

Robinson told News Shopper: “He could've scored a hat-trick. I spoke to Feeno [Crawley assistant manager Warren Feeney] and I spoke to H [Harry Kewell] after the game and he said ‘what a great kid and player’.

“Karlan could've been an unused sub for us on Saturday and everyone would’ve gone ‘he should've gone on loan’ and all of a sudden you send him on loan and he scores and everyone goes ‘why is he being sent out on loan?’

“We want Karlan to go and score 10 goals between now and the end of the season. It’s not a mistake that he's not with us, it’s not about my term, it’s about the next manager’s term and the next manager’s term.

“Karlan’s loan is not for Charlton now, it’s for pre-season and for him to come back and blow the socks off the manager next season - and make it impossible for him not to play.

“Without this loan, he just becomes a squad player and that becomes transfixed in his mentality.

“We have to train the habits of him playing week in, week out. There are [Charlton] players ahead of him now so let’s get him out on loan.

“He’s a top player and if he comes off it, Kewell will tell him.

“If I find out he’s come off it, I’ll be driving down to Crawley to give him a shake because even though he’s not here, he’s still our player. I speak to him every week and we’ll make sure he stays strong.”
