Charlton Athletic boss Karl Robinson has provided Addicks fans with a transfer update, following his side’s 2-0 victory at Crawley Town in the Checkatrade Trophy last night.
Goals from summer signing Ben Reeves and youngster George Lapslie were on target for Charlton, as they got off to a winning start in Group A of the controversial competition. After the final whistle, Robinson was asked about the potential ins and outs at the Valley in the final 48 hours before the transfer deadline.
The former MK-Dons manager claims that the final hours of the transfer window, which closes at 11pm tomorrow night, may well be ‘busy’, although he also says that he is content with the makeup of his squad.
Here is what the 36-year-old said on Charlton’s club website:
“As we stand here now, we’re happy with what we’ve got.
“I’ve said from the outset that I wanted a striker but we’re scoring goals from all over the pitch at the moment.
“It’s going to be busy over the next 48 hours – maybe keeping our players. Hopefully as the transfer window comes to a close we can be quite resolute about what we want to do moving forward.”
It has been a hectic transfer window at the Valley thus far, as Robinson, who arrived at Charlton in November 2016, aims to build a squad capable of mounting a serious promotion bid form League One.
Talented individuals such as Ben Reeves, who worked under Robinson at MK Dons, Jay Dasilva, who has joined on a season-long loan from Chelsea, and Bradford pair Mark Marshall and Billy Clarke, among others, have all arrived in South East London so far this summer.
