Transfers pending?

Charlton's Head Coach - Iain Dowie - has confirmed that he has held talks with potential acquisitions, some of whom are currently in Germany playing in the World Cup.

This can only be good news for Addicks fans, as little transfer activity has occurred since most of the forward line was released at the end of the season.

We are still being linked with a number of potential targets (Sidwell (left), Mears, Edwards...), but interestingly Dowie said that some of the new players may be youngsters, bought for the future.

The contract situation at English clubs means that any Bosman transfers are made official on 1st July and, as that is this Saturday, do not be surprised to see a couple of new signings announced then. Whether any make a significant impact on morale at the club, and with the fans, is dependent on who they are, but we remain hopeful. One long term target from Reading who is out of contract is James Harper, and he may well be announced as our first Bosman signing at the weekend.
