Done Deal: Charlton Athletic strengthen their squad with in-demand midfield ace



Charlton Athletic have signed Ben Reeves, the club’s official website has confirmed.

Ben Reeves was a free agent after refusing a new contract with Milton Keynes Dons and he now joins Charlton Athletic on a two year deal.

Karl Robinson has moved to reunite with the midfielder, who helped him win promotion from League One with MK Dons.

The creative play maker, who likes to play as an attacking midfielder but can also play as a more conventional central midfielder, has moved to Charlton Athletic after four years at Milton Keynes.

The Southampton academy graduate, who made thirteen appearances for the Saints in all competitions, joins MK in 2013 after loan spells with Dagenham & Redbridge and Southend United.

Having played well over 100 for the Buckinghamshire based club, Reeves now moved on and joins Charlton Athletic as they target a better second year in the third tier.

The Addicks finished 13th last season and Karl Robinson has brought in a number of players to push them further up the table.

Reeves watched Charlton’s 6-1 pre-season friendly victory over Ipswich Town and has now decided to join them on a free transfer.

The 25-year-old, who won the Milton Keynes’ Player of the Year award in 2014 while Robinson was manager, could be in line or his debut against Bristol Rovers tomorrow.

The Verdict

Ben Reeves is a superb signing for Charlton Athletic and it makes sense for both parties.

On a free transfer, Charlton have snapped up a very talented creative midfielder who can provide a spark out of nothing and add goals and assists to this team.

As for Reeves, it must have been a no-brainer to join a highly ambitious club who are based in London, play in a fantastic stadium, have a large fan base and plenty of history.

Not to mention that he will once again be working with Karl Robinson again.
