Loan striker Jayden Stockley has spoken of his pride at playing for Charlton and has revealed his hopes to stay at the club should the opportunity arise.
The 27-year old has made a great impact since arriving on loan from Preston North End in January, scoring four goals and putting in some eye-catching, committed performances for the Addicks, carving out an early reputation as a fan favourite at The Valley.
And speaking in his exclusive interview in the March edition of Valley Review, Stockley revealed that he has already become a very proud Addick.
“You never know where your career will take you,” he said.
“To have the name of Charlton on your CV is something I’m immensely proud of and it’s a journey that I hope won’t just stop here.
“Part of me could have stayed there [at Preston], kept a place on the bench to come on and play a few. But it’s all about football for me. It’s about putting myself out there and realising the sort of player I am again, getting that confidence of scoring goals and getting that drive of football back.
“As a young lad, I just went out to whoever wanted me on loan,” added Stockley.
“I used to go on emergency loans all the time because, instead of playing U21 games, I’d rather go on loan for a month. That was me forcing my way out a lot, that’s why I had so many loans.”
