There has not been much to shout about for Charlton fans during what has been a miserable season for the Addicks, which looks likely to end with a return to League One after four years back in the Championship.

They do however have a couple of exciting youngsters on their books, one of those being winger Callum Harriott, who has impressed at the Valley following his loan spell with Colchester earlier in the campaign.

After featuring twice for Charlton at the beginning of the season, Harriott moved to the Essex club on a four-month loan spell, dropping down to the third tier, where he was embroiled in another relegation fight.

Seven goals and seven assists for the U`s saw Harriott recalled 24 hours early from his loan spell to go straight into the Charlton starting line-up for their first match of 2016, a 1-1 draw at home to Nottingham Forest.

The former England under 19 international has scored three goals since his return in January, those coming as a brace in a 2-1 win at Brentford, and the second goal in an impressive 2-0 victory at home to Middlesbrough.

Should what looks like an inevitable relegation occur for the Addicks in the coming weeks, there will likely be a number of interested parties in the 22-year-old, who came through the academy at the South London club.

He first appeared for Charlton coming on as a late substitute for loanee Dean Parrett towards the end of the 2010/2011 campaign in a 3-1 win over Rochdale, before his full debut came on the final day of that season.

He was named in the starting line-up for a goalless draw at home to Hartlepool, as Charlton finished mid-table in League One, and it would be just over a year and a half before he featured again for the first team.

His next appearance came from the bench in January 2013, his first in the Championship, in a 2-1 win at home to Blackpool, the first of 14 appearances that term that saw him bag his first two goals for the club, as Charlton finished three points adrift of the play-off places.

His real breakthrough season came the following year, when he turned out 34 times, which saw his best goalscoring return to date, with six league goals, five of which came in the last two matches of the season, including a hat-trick away at Blackpool on the final day as they the club finished in 18th.

Appearances last term were not so frequent for the youngster, as he featured 23 times, notching one goal, to help the club to a mid-table finish, ahead of what has been a disastrous campaign this time round.

Given his form while on loan at Colchester, and the predicament Charlton currently find themselves in, had they retained him for the first half of the campaign, they may have had a few more points on the board.

Whether he remains at the club beyond the end of the season will likely be a big talking point throughout the summer, but alongside Ademola Lookman, the club possess two very impressive young English talents.
