Richard Cawley from the South London Press today revealed that Charlton had missed the cutoff time to register new signings in time for their midweek clash against Fulham.
The Addicks have only seen one signing so far this January transfer window, with Andre Green arriving on loan until the end of the season from Aston Villa, and the Charlton fans are patiently waiting for more to come through the door at The Valley.
Lee Bowyer had a bid accepted for Peterborough United attacking midfielder Marcus Maddison last week, but contract talks have stalled in the past week as Charlton have hit a stumbling block in trying to secure their main transfer target.

Having lost midfielder Conor Gallagher because of a Chelsea recall, Bowyer has been busy attempting to replace him, with the Addicks currently leading the race for Rangers central midfielder Greg Docherty ahead of a proposed loan move.
Maddison isn’t the only lower league player that Charlton are thought to be chasing, with the Addicks also showing interest in Bristol Rovers striker Jonson Clarke-Harris and his team-mate, club captain and central midfielder Ollie Clarke.
Here, we take a look at the best reaction from Charlton fans to the latest transfer development at The Valley…
Incoming Charlton 1-0 Fulham tomorrow night.

What a surprise. Didn’t Bowyer say he wanted to get some in for the Fulham game. This is well beyond being a joke now
