Addicks working hard to secure Matthews signature
Charlton’s head of recruitment and director Steve Gallen says talks are ongoing with free agent Adam Matthews.
Wales international Matthews is without a club after his contract at League One outfit Sunderland expired this summer but he could be handed a chance to kick-start his career at The Valley.
Lee Bowyer is eager to bring in a new right-back and the Addicks are in negotiations with the 27-year-old about a possible switch to the Championship side, who are sitting second in the league after six games.
Speaking about the possibility of a deal being agreed, Gallen, who revealed free agent Tyrone Mears is not a target, confirmed there could be a fresh start on the horizon for the former Celtic ace
He 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 then that will be our last signing. There are a few free transfers about and there is one other right-back, which is not Tyrone Mears. There is a will on both sides to do it. It’s just finding that common ground.”
