Charlton are expected to re-sign free agent Adam Matthews, according to South London Press.
Matthews spent last term at The Valley, making 28 appearances in total, but couldn’t save the Addicks from suffering relegation back to League One.
However, the right-back is expected to sign until the end of the season – and although the domestic EFL window closed on 16 October, he can still be signed because he’s currently a free agent.
Matthews has been training with Charlton and even featured in their pre-season defeat to Crystal Palace (pictured) at Selhurst Park, and the South London Press believe that the 28-year-old wasn’t able to join earlier this summer due to the Addicks’ transfer embargo.
Lee Bowyer’s have made an impressive start to the League One campaign, although Matthews will have his work cut out in breaking into a Charlton defence that have kept four consecutive clean sheets.
And the Addicks are yet to concede since experienced right-back Chris Gunter also joined on a free earlier this month.
Are these 10 facts about Charlton actually true?
This is another terrific signing for Charlton.
Bowyer now has two of the best right-backs in League One at his disposal, and hasn’t been forced to spend a single penny.
He’s going to need a large squad if his Addicks side are going to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking, and after an excellent transfer window, this is another positive step in the right direction for a Charlton defence that’re already thriving.
