Charlton have set their sights on bringing former keeper Ben Amos back to the club.

The former Manchester United stopper is available on a free transfer after leaving Bolton following the end of his contract. The South London Press are reporting that Charlton are interested in a deal that would bring him back to The Valley.

He spent last season on loan at Millwall but was unable to hold down a regular place in the side. He replaced Jordan Archer in the early part of the season but then lost his place as Archer regained the number one shirt. Dave Martin then took over from Archer towards the end of the campaign with Amos having to settle for a place on the bench.

When speaking to the South London Press Charlton Manager Lee Bowyer confirmed that there is interest in the keeper who played for Charlton during the 2017/18 season. “Ben is one of the ones we are trying to work on, but he was on a hell of a lot of money. So it’s just whether he is prepared to go down to what we are going to offer. We’re just trying to persuade him – he did a great job for us before.

“He loved it here at the club and the fans took to him. He has the experience and has played in the division. He knows what we’re like as a club. It is the perfect fit. We do need some experienced players in that division, for sure. Ben is a confidence player. Ben had a rocky start to the season with us and then he got better and better as the season went on.”
