Charlton Athletic have agreed a deal to sign Bradford City’s Billy Clarke according to a report from The Telegraph and Argus.

The 29-year-old striker is coming off the back of a good season for the Bantams where he scored seven goals as the club reached the Sky Bet League One play-off final. However they were once again denied by Millwall who beat them 1-0 at Wembley to make sure that Bradford would have to spend another year in the third tier of English football.

But his time at Valley Parade is set to come to an end as a deal has been agreed to take him to Charlton. Even though there is still a year left on his contract, Bradford were happy to agree a fee with Charlton and send him on his way to South London. It is currently unknown how much the Addicks have paid for Clarke but to pay any money shows that they believe he will be an important player for them next season as they look to challenge for promotion from League One after not even being involved in the race to go up this season.

Charlton will be adding a very experienced striker to their ranks when this deal is made official. He has played for the likes of Ipswich Town and Crawley Town throughout his career and has also got caps from the Republic of Ireland U21s. But now he will be heading to a new club as his time as he becomes a Charlton player and hopes to help them battle for promotion.
