So far business has been getting wrapped up early in the 2019 January transfer window with the permanent signing of Welsh central attacking midfielder Jonny Williams. The former Palace man is joined by fellow Welshman Chris Maxwell who comes to us on loan from Preston North End. This is unlike the Charlton we know and thankfully were actually getting stuff done and with these two new additions and at least two more expected to come through the door very soon, things are really looking up for us.
Today Lee Bowyer had his press conference and he has mentioned that there is a left-back in for a medical today, so a new signing is expected within the next couple hours, but we are still waiting on paperwork from the other club. Also, the boss mentioned that they have started the proceedings on signing an attacking player but no word on who it could be, however the club he belongs to is aware of the interest. Yesterday I posted an article about striker/winger Rushian Hepburn-Murphy who currently plays for Villa, there’s a big possibility it could be him on a loan deal.
A slight rumour has been going around that it could be CJ Hamilton from Mansfield as he impressed Bowyer during our FA Cup tie with the Stags, he had two games to look at him and he was impressed with his performance.
In regards to who this left-back could be narrows down to a couple people and one of them being former Bury player Greg Leigh who plays for NAC Breda in Holland, he garnered a good reputation at Bury and could be a decent signing for us. The other one that every fan is hoping for after hearing this is the re-signing of Jay DaSilva, I really hope it’s him because our attacking game is improving and with him on the left it will get even better and quicker going forward and that is exactly what we need. I know he is still on loan at Bristol City but I heard something about a deal being agreed with Chelsea so only time will tell.
#cafc set to sign a left-back today.
