The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MANCH­ESTER City are the lat­est club to be linked with Charl­ton star­let Joe Gomez but Ad­dicks boss Guy Lu­zon is happy to ig­nore the spec­u­la­tion.

Gomez, 17, has been at­tract­ing the in­ter­est of a num­ber of Pre­mier League scouts this sea­son, with Ar­se­nal thought to be in­ter­ested in se­cur­ing his sig­na­ture.

The Eng­land U19 de­fender has also been linked with Ever­ton and New­cas­tle, while cham­pi­ons City are re­port­edly the lat­est club to join the chase.

How­ever, Lu­zon has al­ready made his in­ten­tions clear re­gard­ing Gomez and his po­si­tion has not changed.

“I think now he is not ready to play in the Pre­mier League,” said the Is­raeli manager.

“Now at his age he needs to play and only by play­ing con­sis­tently will he im­prove his level. It is no doubt that we are the best place for him now.

“For the club and for him the best thing is to stay.”
