Thomas Sandgaard has offered his thoughts on the arrival on George Dobson and says that the midfielder joining is a reflection of the transfer policy the club has put in place for this summer.
The Addicks are well and truly up and running now in terms of the summer market with Jayden Stockley, Craig MacGillivray and Dobson all signing for the club.
Indeed, Nigel Adkins is beginning to put his squad together as they aim for a promotion challenge next season and Sandgaard is pleased with Dobson’s arrival, with him ticking the boxes of being a young player with potential that already boasts good experience at this level.
The Charlton owner said via the club’s official website:
“George is a player our recruitment team have been looking at very closely and highlighted as one of our priorities. He is a talented midfielder who, despite his young age, has a wealth of experience at this level, so I’m really pleased we’re able to welcome him to The Valley.”
Charlton have obviously signed experienced players in Stockley and MacGillivray this summer but it is clear that they want to try and add some younger options as well, hence the arrival of Dobson.
He impressed in the second half of the season at AFC Wimbledon last year on loan from Sunderland and, after falling out of favour on Wearside, will be itching to prove himself at a club like Charlton.
Clearly, the figures that matter are pleased with this deal and fans will be eager to see him action.
