Charlton Athletic transfer chief provides update on move for former Sunderland and Celtic defender


Charlton Athletic’s head of recruitment Steve Gallen has confirmed that talks are ongoing with former Sunderland and Celtic defender Adam Matthews – but also that they have another option if negotiations can’t be concluded successfully.

The 27-year-old right back has been training with the Addicks and is a free agent, so he is able to move outside of the transfer window.

Gallen told the South London Press: “We are speaking to Adam Matthews’ agent about doing something. There is nothing concrete yet but I think we can get some common ground between us.

“If we do that [deal] then that will be our last signing.

“There are a few free transfers about and there is one other right-back [option], which is not Tyrone Mears.

“There is a will on both sides [with Matthews] to do it. It’s just finding that common ground.”
