Overseas club target second Charlton Athletic raid with key defender eyed

Charlton Athletic defender Terell Thomas is now on the radar of Hungarian side Fehervar, reporter Pete O’Rourke has said on X.

Charlton Athletic fans could be forgiven if they hadn’t heard of Hungarian top-flight outfit Fehervar before 2024. However, the overseas club will now be one The Valley faithful are tiring of.

They tried to sign star midfielder George Dobson in January but when a deal failed to materialise, they instead struck a pre-contract agreement with him. As a result, the Addicks ace will move there in the summer.

Now, fresh claims from reporter Pete O’Rourke suggest they’re eyeing another raid on South London.

Writing on X, O’Rourke states that versatile defender Terell Thomas is on Fehervar’s radar.

28-year-old Thomas has developed into a key player for Charlton Athletic over the course of the campaign. He’s been important in Nathan Jones’ turnaround at The Valley but his contract is up at the end of the season.

As a result, the door could be open for Fehervar to swoop for another of the League One club’s influential players.

Who is this?

One to hold onto?

Thomas hasn’t always been the first name on the Charlton Athletic team sheet. He’s cemented his place in the starting XI over 2024 though and has an important part to play at the back for Jones.

His ability to play in a range of defensive positions makes him of value too. While centre-back is his usual role – be it in a back three or four – he is also able to fill in at left-back if needs be.

Given the key role he has assumed, the club will surely be hoping to secure his future beyond the end of the campaign. Interest from Fehervar offers an intriguing new challenge for the Saint Lucia international, but Jones will be keen to retain his services and keep him onboard beyond this summer.

Time will tell if anything comes of the links as the Addicks see another of their key men draw surprise Hungarian interest.
