Garner goes back to Swindon for Jack Payne
Looks as if Jack Payne will be the next Ben Garner acquisition as the new Addicks’ boss raids his old club once more.
27-year old Payne can play as an 8 or a 10, and turned down a very good offer to apparently take lower wages at Charlton. Payne will have a medical today before being announced tomorrow.
The London born Payne began his career at Southend, played in The Championship with Huddersfield, had loan spells whilst the Yorkshire side were in the Premier League at L1 Oxford United, Blackburn and Bradford before signing for Lincoln City. A season later Payne joined Swindon where he played 88 games, scoring 18 goals and providing 13 assists.
