Charlton Athletic are set to make a move to sign Fulham’s Jack Grimmer according to a report from Kent Live.

The 23-year-old defender was once seen as a hot prospect in the Fulham academy as someone who could break into their first team and become a key player for them. That is why the Cottagers paid £200K to sign him from Scottish side Aberdeen back in 2012 but unfortunately for both the club and the player, this is yet to work out for either party.

Grimmer has been unable to break into the Fulham first team and has instead been loaned out to get the first team experience he needs to become a better player. For the last eighteen months he has been playing at Shrewsbury Town and has done well for the Shropshire side, holding down a place in the first team as they once again successfully battled against relegation from Sky Bet League One.

But now Grimmer may be set to move to different League one side this time as it appears he may be finally about to leave Fulham permanently. Their head coach Karl Robinson is looking to rebuild the squad in his image following a very disappointing season where they failed to challenge for promotion just a year after they were relegated from the Sky Bet Championship. And with Grimmer having a lot of experience in League One thanks to his loan spells in the division and that he still has plenty of potential due to how young he is, Charlton believe he could be the ideal addition to their team.
