Welcome, Nile John

Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Nile John has joined Charlton on loan.   He comes highly recommended by Chris Powell who accompanied him to Sparrows Lane.

Chris Powell commented to the SLP: 'We primarily play him as an attacking midfielder but he's got a good understanding, in some games he has played deeper. It will be a real test for him at League One level but we have no doubts about his quality and his potential.'

'He will go to a club I know well and that I recommended when I heard there was interest. Straight away I knew with John [Jackson], Jason [Euell] - and I'd been speaking with Steve Gallen - that he would add to the group.'

Charlie Kirk has joined Blackpool on loan in a deal that may become permanent.   Blackpool boss Neil Critchley worked with Kirk at Crewe.

Richard Cawley reports that the signing of Marcus Browne is still 'a work in progress'.   If it goes ahead, h he will be the last signing in the window.
