Charlton Athletic manager Karl Robinson confirmed earlier today that former midfielder and French international Alou Diarra was now back training with the club.

Having spent time with us from February 2015 to May 2016, Diarra has been without a club since leaving Nancy and having asked if he could return to improve and keep his fitness levels high, he took his first training session on Monday and Robinson is happy for him to remain with us – although at this stage nobody is talking about short term contracts.

Speaking to the Official Site to explain the situation, the gaffer revealed.

‘He still has a place locally and he’s spoken with Jacko, Kashi and a few others and wanted to come in. He’s an impeccable character, a complete professional and is a great role model for some of our young players to speak to, watch and learn from.’
