Chelsea planning bid for Charlton goalkeeper James Beadle

Chelsea are following Charlton Athletic goalkeeper James Beadle.

Blues scouts have been tracking the 17-year-old Beadle for some time, and believe he has the potential to become a mainstay for the first team for years to come, says The Sun.

And now they are set to pounce as he makes his breakthrough at under-21 level for the Three Lions.

League One Charlton are in a vulnerable position because of Beadle's contract status.

And that means they could potentially lose him for a nominal sum, with the shotstopper not being on professional terms.

But Addicks chiefs are desperate for a fee for their starlet and will fight tooth and nail for compensation.

They are hopeful that they can pocket around £400,000, plus extras for the teen prodigy.
