Charlton Athletic have option to ‘buy-back’ player they sold on deadline day

Charlton Athletic allowed defender Brendan Wiredu to leave on a permanent basis and join Colchester United late in the last transfer window. 

The youngster has joined the League Two side for good after spending time on loan there during the first-half of the season.

However, Charlton have inserted a ‘buy-back’ clause as part of the deal, as per a report by London News Online. 

The Addicks have also put in a sell-on clause as well so he is a name for their fans to keep an eye on in the future.
