Regan Charles-Cook leaves for Gills
Regan Charles-Cook had fallen behind in the pecking order last season and has left on a free transfer to Gillingham after the midfielder turned down the offer of a one-year extension to his current Charlton contract, which the club actually announced he had signed.
Charles-Cook has spent previous season’s on loan in the National League at Solihull Moors and Woking. The 21-year old came from Arsenal to Charlton’s academy in 2013 and at one time it looked as he would become a regular feature in the first team squad but his loan spells away from SE7 hindered and not helped his Valley career. He made 9 first-team appearances and scored with a accomplished finish in League Cup victory at Exeter City last August.
He definitely doesn’t have the phsicality of Konsa, Aribo or even Dijksteel and more disappointing is that his departure reduces the number of double barreled players in the squad to just four.
