Lee Bowyer has revealed that the club have approached him regarding a new deal.

Speaking ahead Saturday’s crucial fixture with Portsmouth, the Charlton manager said that the club will offer him a contract.

Bowyer, who was made manager on a permanent basis earlier this season, will be a free agent along with assistant manager Johnnie Jackson this summer.

“Someone who works with the owner (Roland Duchatelet), approached me and said they would like to offer me a new contract,” said Bowyer.

“I said ‘great’, and they said they’d come back to me.

“That’s where we are.

“I don’t know about Johnnie (Jackson).”

It's widely regarded that Bowyer has excelled this season, giving the Addicks a real chance of promotion, and as such the Valley faithful are eager to tie their leader to a new deal.

There were rumours linking Jackson with a host of clubs in both League One and Two so the news that contracts are on the verge of beginning with the manager will ease some fans somewhat.
