Some Charlton fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported by The South London Press that Adam Matthews looks set to be handed a one-year contract by the Addicks.
Matthews, formerly of Celtic and Sunderland, had been training with the south Londoners as they looked to add another option to the right side of their defence following the £2m sale of Anfernee Dijksteel to Middlesbrough in the summer window.
The aforementioned report states that this will be Charlton’s last signing until the winter window opens.
Addicks boss Lee Bowyer also had a look at Tyrone Mears, but has seemingly decided to hand the 27-year-old a one-year deal to provide competition to Chris Solly and Deji Oshilaja.
Matthews was released by Sunderland after the 2018/19 campaign came to an end, in which the Black Cats missed out on promotion having lost the League One playoff final to Charlton – he made 67 appearances for the Wearsiders.
Let’s see how the Charlton fans on Twitter reacted to the news regarding the 14-cap Wales international…
Excellent news!! Very pleased with this. He’ll be a good addition and means we really have great depth across all areas. #cafc

Doesn’t matter who we get in, Bowyer makes them ball out. Simply because you give your all or you don’t play.

That’ll do me ? I can’t argue with any signings we’ve made so far.
