Diego Poyet is unhappy with broken promises from Charlton during his loan spell

By London correspondent Tony Hughes

Diego Poyet is upset that promises have been broken during his loan spell at Charlton, according to a report.

The West Ham midfielder began his second period on loan at the club in January when then-interim manager Karel Fraeye was in charge.

According to the News Shopper, Poyet was led to believe that he would once again feature prominently when Fraeye’s replacement Jose Riga turn the reins at Charlton for a second time later in January.

However, Poyet has barely had a look-in under the former Standard Liege manager and it is said that broken promises regarding the 21-year-old’s playing time have left him “bewildered”.

The midfield anchorman and a Uruguay Under-20 international was Charlton Player of the Year in 2013/14, when he was a mainstay of the side.

Poyet then joined West Ham and spent most of last season in the squad, bar a short loan spell at Huddersfield, but he was not part of Slaven Bilic’s thinking for this season.

He was loaned out to MK Dons for the first half of the campaign, and was a first-team regular for the Championship side.

The Charlton academy graduate, who is the son of former Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, then returned to the Addicks in January but has been overlooked most of the time.

He has not made an appearance in over a month for the South Londoners, who are second from bottom of the Championship, 10 points adrift of safety and almost certainly heading in to League One.
