Have Charlton won swoop for striker?

Unconfirmed reports from Bristol state that Charlton have beaten the Gas and Sunderland in a swoop for PNE striker Jayden Stockley.  It would be a loan deal until the end of the season:

Having someone who is 6ft. 2ins. could be useful, although he has been loaned out a lot in his career:

Richard Cawley of the SLP has confirmed that Charlton are trying to sign Stockley on loan.

The loan deal with Stockley has to be agreed by 12 noon if he is to feature against Swindon tomorrow:

Richard Cawley is hopeful this can be done, although it was hoped to conclude a deal at the weekend so that he could have featured against Peterborough.

Jayden Stockley has arrived at Charlton and has been training with his new team-mates today:

Richard Cawley has suggested that his arrival may mean that Omar Bogle will seek new opportunities elsewhere, news that has been received calmly by supporters.  

Some fans think that we should have signed a defender rather than a striker, but it is a question of who is available within the salary cap.  Famewo has been running this week.


  1. Our strikers might not be tearing up many trees at the moment, one of them not fit for 3 and a bit hours effort per week, but pursuing more strikers now when we have no fit or able centre halves is just wrong headed, the opposite of sense.
    Tuesday night writ large, yet again, that the unsuitability of the so called defenders is absolute - 3 points given away meekly by woefully inadequate personnel.

  2. I agree, but then it's a question of who is available in this awkward transfer window for a deal within the constraints of the salary cap. Famewo should be back soon, he is running.
