He has also spent time on trial with Portsmouth this summer, as per The News, and will eagerly awaiting to see if the Addicks decide to offer him a contract.
Charlton boss, Nigel Adkins, has said: “As we go through, we’ve had a good couple of weeks now and he’s done really, really well. We’ll sit down during the course of the week and we need to make a decision on it.
“He’s certainly not done himself any harm. We’ve got to make a decision as to whether he’s going to be here for a longer period of time.”
Gomes would give the London club more competition and depth in their midfield department for next season.
He spent the past two seasons at Doncaster and scored four goals in 42 appearances for them in all competitions.
