Love Island star set for career-defining move to Championship club Charlton

Former Love Island star Dennon Lewis could be set for a career-defining move to professional football this summer.

Lewis, who starred in last summer's edition of the ITV2 reality television show, currently plies his trade in Non League with Wealdstone.

But the striker could be set for a stunning move to Championship side Charlton, who have opened talks over a £50,000 move.

According to The Sun, the Addicks aren't the only team interested in landing Lewis and are fighting off competition from Huddersfield, Sunderland, Oxford and Leyton Orient.

The 23-year-old has been in fine form for Wealdstone, helping them win the National League South title by notching 14 goals and providing 11 assists.

Lewis began his career with Premier League Watford but failed to make a first-team appearance before leaving Vicarage Road in 2018.

He was forced to drop down the lower leagues and has had spells with Woking, Crawley, Falkirk and Bromley before joining Wealdstone last year.

His impressive form for his current employers comes despite him missing the first 10 games of the season to take part in Love Island.

Lewis was among the late arrivals when he appeared in the Casa Amor villa but, despite striking up a good relationship with Maura Higgins, left the show after failing to couple up with anyone.

The footballer turned his attention back to Wealdstone and could now be set for a stunning move to Charlton.

With top scorer Lyle Taylor leaving the club, Lewis could well provide the Londoners with much-needed firepower regardless of what division they are in next season.
