A number of Charlton Athletic supporters have been reacting to a potential hint from manager Nigel Adkins on his personal Twitter account after they secured the signing of Craig MacGillivray.
It had been a quiet start to the transfer window for Charlton this summer, but the Addicks finally secured their first addition of the window by wrapping up a deal for former Portsmouth goalkeeper MacGillivray yesterday. That came after he was allowed to leave Pompey at the end of his contract.
Charlton had already seen their former number one Ben Amos secure himself a move away to League One rivals Wigan Athletic, while forward Chuks Aneke also left the club on a free transfer despite having been offered a new deal and ended up signing for Birmingham City.
Quiz: What was the score the last time Charlton Athletic played each of these 25 teams?
Adkins took to his personal Twitter account to react to the confirmation of MacGillivray’s signing and he suggested that the Addicks are going to be in safe hands with their new number one.
While he also hinted that the arrival of the goalkeeper might just be the first signing of the week, and therefore hinting that other signings are potentially close to happening.
