Bauer is a man mountain of a centre-back and joins the Addicks for an undisclosed fee from Portuguese side Maritimo.

The highly-rated defender has put pen-to-paper on a four-year deal with the London-based club.

The 22-year-old was a product of the academy at German club VfB Stuttgart before moving to the Portuguese Primeira Liga, initially on loan in 2012, before making a permanent switch a year later.

The towering defender stands at 6ft 4in and was a rock at the heart of the Maritimo defence last season, helping the club to the Portuguese Cup Final, where they were defeated 2-1 by Benfica.

In total he made 57 appearances during his time in Portugal and becomes Charlton boss Guy Luzon’s first summer signing.
