Charlton Athletic are interested in signing Ben Amos.

The Bolton Wanderers man is available on a free transfer and spent last season on loan at Millwall.

Amos struggled to hold down a starting spot at The Den and David Martin, who has penned a two-year deal with West Ham United, finished the campaign as number one for the Lions.

But the ex-Manchester United stopper had impressed in the 2017-18 season for Charlton when he arrived on a season-long loan.

And Addicks boss Lee Bowyer has confirmed that Amos is on his shortlist of potential signings.

“Ben is one of the ones we are trying to work on,” he told the South London Press. “But he was on a hell of a lot of money, so it’s just whether he is prepared to go down to what we are going to offer.

“We’re just trying to persuade him – he did a great job for us before.

“He loved it here at the club and the fans took to him.

“He has the experience and has played in the division. He knows what we’re like as a club. It is the perfect fit. We do need some experienced players in that division, for sure.

“Ben is a confidence player. Ben had a rocky start to the season with us and then he got better and better as the season went on.”
