Charlton Athletic: Fans react to potential new signing

Many Charlton fans appear to be delighted with rumours linking them to right-back Adam Matthews.

According to Richard Cawley from the South London Press, Matthews is set to join Charlton on a one-year deal.

27-year-old Matthews has been training with Charlton and will allegedly be the final transfer the Addicks will make before the January transfer window arrises.

The former Celtic and Cardiff man is currently a free agent after being released by Sunderland.

The report suggests that Lee Bowyer is currently on the hunt for more depth at right-back after selling Afernee Dijksteel to Middlesbrough for £2m. It is said that they have opted for Matthews rather than signing Tyrone Mears.

Matthews featured 23 times in League One last season, weighing in with one goal and five assists, as per Transfermarkt.

Charlton fans have responded to the rumours on Twitter and it seems many of them will be joyous if they can get it over the line.

Here are some of the responses from fans below…
