Andersen stays an Addick

01 Sep 2006 - 16:29:08

Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Stephan Andersen's loan switch to Leeds United has been called off due to a disagreement over a recall clause.

The 24-year-old Denmark international had been expected to move to Elland Road after finding first-team opportunities limited at The Valley, but Andersen will now stay put.

Charlton's general manager, Andrew Mills, told the club's official website: "It looked as though the deal was done, but Leeds were uncomfortable with the recall clause we were keen to implement so, regrettably, it did not happen.

"We felt we needed to mirror the Scott Carson situation.

"Iain (Dowie) could not afford to loan out Stephan and not have the option to recall him in the event of anything happening with Scott.

"Stephan is obviously disappointed, but he has been very professional about it and is prepared to fight for his place here."

Andersen joined Charlton in the summer of 2004 from AB Copenhagen, but has made just 18 outings for the Addicks.
