Charlton Athletic have been active in the transfer market already, but now it’s July expect them to be even busier as Nigel Adkins looks to put together a promotion-winning squad.
The Addicks have already beaten off several of their League One rivals to sign Jayden Stockley on a permanent basis and they’ve bolstered their goalkeeping department as well with the acquisition of Portsmouth stopper Craig MacGillivray.
The club are being linked to all different kinds of players and it hasn’t taken them long into the month to confirm their third new addition of the window, as George Dobson has arrived from league rivals Sunderland.
After signing for the Black Cats in 2019 from West Ham United, Dobson hasn’t had the best time of things on Wearside, playing just five times last season before being shipped off on loan to AFC Wimbledon.

The 23-year-old had a good second half to the campaign though with the Dons and his resurgence in form has led to Charlton snapping him up, with Sunderland coming to an agreement to terminate his contract to make the move happen.
Nothing beats an early morning signing and Charlton fans are quite pleased with their latest addition.

Will judge him on what he does in a Charlton shirt, but I have a good feeling about this guy.
