Macauley Bonne makes permanent transfer to Queens Park Rangers

Macauley Bonne has joined Queens Park Rangers on a permanent deal, pending the conclusion of a successful a medical, for an undisclosed fee.

The striker joined the Addicks in the summer 2019 and scored 12 goals in 40 appearances for the club. 

Charlton Manager Lee Bowyer said: “QPR came in and made an offer that we couldn’t refuse. He did well for us last season and got 11 goals but looking at the bigger picture, it is the right price and the right deal for us.

“We brought Macauley in just over a year ago, we paid £200,000, it was more like a project really. He’s done well and improved and we got an offer that was the right offer for the club. 

“We’ve done the deal for footballing reasons. Macauley now will move on and we’ll look to replace him. That’s going to be important, we’ll have to bring the right person in to replace him, it was definitely the right decision to let Macauley move on.

“We’ve got two weeks with the Ipswich game called off, we’ve got two weeks to bring two strikers in. There isn’t loads out there and we have to pick the right ones. I believe we’ll bring players in that suit the way we want to play and will do well for us.”

Everyone at Charlton Athletic wishes Macauley well in his future career.
