Charlton Athletic manager Karl Robinson has said he is eager to add to his squad before next weekend’s South London derby against Millwall.

According to a report from London News Online, Addicks boss Robinson wants to “splash a bit of money” next week in order to add some quality to his ranks.

“I think we need one more [signing]in before Millwall,” he told the club’s YouTube channel.

“We’re working very hard at the moment. It’s not always great to put a timescale on things because you are there to be shot at if it doesn’t happen.”

The London side have already dipped into the transfer market this month, having brought Brighton midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey and West Ham full back Lewis Page to the Valley early on.

Robinson has also overseen the high-profile departure of starlet Ademola Lookman to Everton, who was followed out of the club by veteran utility player Kevin Foley, and fellow defender Morgan Fox who was poached by Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday.

“It has been a very productive few days,” he continued.

“We’ve reduced the age of the team, increased the energy and hopefully increased the excitement.

“I don’t want to put bums on seats, I want to reverse that and get bums off seats in that people are constantly on their feet clapping and applauding.”

The Addicks are currently sat in mid table in League One, and boss Robinson will be hoping that an influx of new faces can spark a promotion push, as they look to reclaim their spot in the Championship at the first attempt.
