Kirk joins Blackpool

Blackpool happily ensconced in mid-table in The Championship after winning the play-off’s last season have signed Charlie Kirk on loan with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

Marcus Browne on a permanent

An interesting development in the Marcus Browne rumour. The reliable Rich Cawley is suggesting a permanent deal for the 24-year old attacking midfielder from Middlesbrough.

Josh leaves on loan. Others to follow

22-year old Josh Davison has moved to Swindon Town on loan for the remainder of the season to help the Robins’ challenge for promotion from League Two. A certain Welshman called Williams is already at the County Ground.

New loan signing

Not a young Spurs loanee, but another from the Chelsea factory line.

The Amsterdam born speedy left wing back Juan Castillo has signed on loan until the end of the season. Castillo did play a few games on loan at Birmingham earlier in the season. His season-long loan was cut short. Last season he played on loan in the Eredivisie for ADO Den Haag.

Kirk on his way

Sounding more and more like Charlie Kirk’s short stay at The Valley will come to an end in this window.

There are talks of a permanent move back to the north-west with Blackpool, who obviously see things in him that we haven’t.

Chuks replaces Chuks

The player we never replaced has returned today on a three-and-half-year deal said to be worth £300,000.

Aneke scored 16 goals last season, and moved for a free to Birmingham during the summer. He has played 18 matches for Lee Bowyer’s side but only 370 minutes. He has scored twice this season and came on as sub in their last game.

Harry Arter returns to Forest

The first transfer story of the window is out, and that is the return to Nottingham Forest of Harry Arter.

The return of Arter to the club where he began his career never had the fairytale ending some hoped it might. The 32-year old played five games and only featured under Jackson twice, at home to Havant & Waterlooville and Aston Villa U21’s and was twice substituted.

Sustainable transfer vision

From someone who was asking for some leadership commentary on our transfer strategy through the silence leading up to the deadline, it would be amiss of me if I wasn’t to praise the article yesterday with included insight from Sandgaard, Roddy, Gallen and Adkins.

Henderson is back too

Not a surprise this one, although there was a thought that Nigel Adkins would use the emergency loan market for a back-up keeper, but out-of-contract 33-year old Stephen Henderson signed a one-year contract yesterday.

In the 5 years since leaving Charlton, Stephen Henderson has only played 16 first team matches, but he did have a good spell with us over two seasons and was a popular player amongst a squad that had few endearing qualities at the time.

Left back signs

Charlton added a much-needed left back to their squad today, and it was a slightly peculiar pick. Steve Gallen has a good relationship with Dougie Freedman at Palace, and looks another tip-off from our South London rivals.

Pape Souare has hardly played during the past few years last playing in the French 2nd Division during the Covid hit 2019/20 season. Palace had signed him in January 2015, and he played 34 games for them in that first Premier League season.

It’s a wrap as Lavelle and Leko join

As the clock turned 23.00 hours BST word got out that we had two final signings in the bag.

Then shortly after the hour 24-year old Morecambe captain Sam Lavelle, and old friend Jonathan Leko on loan from Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham were announced.

No Ronnie

No Ronnie Schwartz tonight in the Pizza Trophy at The Valley against Crawley Town. Nigel Adkins has changed the whole team from Saturday, and includes Elliot Lee, Corey Blackett-Taylor and Nathan Harness and is captained by Jason Pearce.

Insulting nonsense

Words used by Gillingham’s Steve Evans to describe the Addicks bid of £100,000 for their midfielder Kyle Dempsey on Monday.

With just one day left of the summer transfer window I truly hope that those two words don’t haunt us and we go to bed tomorrow night with them rattling around our heads.

Harry Arter next

At The Valley today was Harry Arter. The 31-year old midfielder will become Charlton’s next signing after agreeing a season-long loan deal from Nottingham Forest. I read that the deal may become permanent in the summer.

Arter signed a three-year deal at the City Ground a year ago but with problems aplenty at Forest Chris Hughton has written the Republic of Ireland international out of his plans, even though he is still picked by his country.

Like father, like son

A bit of a weird one for me to be honest. I am quite friendly with the Lee family, although not enough to have any real intel, but I am sure Elliot Lee joining the Addicks’ today on loan will have raised a smile with both his grandad and father.
