Charlton Athletic believe they submitted paperwork on time to sign striker Tomer Hemed from Brighton and Hove Albion on Thursday.

The Championship side are hopeful they can still tie up a deal for the experienced forward.

The Addicks posted a statement on their official club website yesterday that read: “Charlton Athletic had submitted the relevant paperwork for the permanent transfer of Brighton & Hove Albion forward Tomer Hemed close to the deadline on Thursday and are awaiting confirmation. The club expect to hear the outcome in the early part of next week”.

Charlton had a busy deadline day and were able to bring in West Brom duo Sam Field and Jonathan Leko, as well as Beram Kayal from Brighton.

They are now hoping to add another option to their attack by signing Hemed. The 32-year-old spent last season on loan in the Championship with QPR and scored seven times for the Hoops in the league.

Hemed, who is an Israel international with 37 caps to his name, is a proven goal scorer at this level having scored a combined 30 goals for Brighton between 2015 and 2017. He has also played 16 times for them in the Premier League and has bagged twice.

Charlton face Stoke City at the Valley today and are hoping to make it two wins from two games after beating Blackburn Rovers on the first day of the season last week.
