Ipswich and Charlton 'monitoring' Stewart situation at Leeds

Hull City KC South Stand

Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic are said to be monitoring Hull City winger Cameron Stewart.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic are reportedly watching the Cameron Stewart and Leeds United saga with a close eye as the Whites look to pull out a pre-signed deal with the player.

The Hull Daily Mail report states: "Ipswich Town and Charlton Athletic are said to be monitoring former Hull City winger Cameron Stewart’s situation at Leeds United.

"Stewart joined Leeds in January on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent deal, but new United owner Massimo Cellino is trying to pull the plug on the deal, which is due to be formalised a week today on July 1st.

"The 23-year-old, who played 11 times for the Whites last season, started last season on loan at Charlton where he scored three times in 18 appearances."

Earlier in the month, the Daily Mail broke the story on Massimo Cellino having second thoughts on the Cameron Stewart transfer and why the new Leeds United owner was keen to pull out of deal that was struck in January with Brian McDermott in charge.

The 23-year-old hasn’t had a good start at Elland Road and many of the supporters are behind Cellino in vetoing the transfer which would see Stewart signed up to Elland Road on a three-year deal. The former Manchester United man was largely underwhelming in his 11 appearances at the club last season and failed to register a single goal.

Nevertheless, the interest from Charlton, who also had him on loan last season, shows that he must have won some plaudits for his performances away from Hull City in the Championship last season and could still be a coup for the club.

However, the saga between Stewart and Leeds will have to be sorted out first, and preferably sooner rather than later.
