Addicks won't be facing Danny Green

Charlton will be breathing a huge sigh of relief with the news that they won't be facing Danny Green next season. He has been released by MK Dons rather late in the summer: Danny Green

However, it looks as if Luton Town might swoop for him, a club that has been a destination for former Addicks in the past.

Wigan make bid for Harriott

Fans have so far reacted calmly to the news about the mercurial winger, who has often been seen as a likely departure.

Action at The Valley

Announcer Big Dave Lockwood has just tweeted that armed police have just jumped a man in Floyd Road.

One version is that he was a Spanner, another that a man has been arrested for making a fraudulent claim to be a footballer.

Addicks in lead in Michiel Kramer race

Charlton are in the lead in the race to sign Michiel Kramer. Sheffield Wednesday have pulled out over his wages and Brentford's interest has cooled, apparently because he does not fit into their overall plan.

However, that does not mean he is coming to The Valley, particularly if wages are an issue. One concern in those situations is upsetting the overall structure, annoying other players.

Simon Church signs for MK Dons

Simon Church will have the chance to score against Charlton next season after signing for MK Dons. He says that the ambition of his new club matches his (to stay in the Championship?).

'Churchy is a really top lad, a good player and can score goals. He will add tremendous quality to our team' said Dons boss Karl Robinson.

I would never fault his effort for us, but all the energy rarely had an outcome in terms of a goal.

Simon Makienok in on loan

Giant striker Simon Makienok is coming in on loan from Palermo. There is an option to convert the signing to a permanent deal in due course: Simon Makienok

Makienok was a goal scoring success at Brondby, but found it difficult to adjust to the style of Italian football. He turned down possible moves to Palace and Fulham in January.

Given his 6ft. 7 ins. height, it may be necessary to raise the height of the entrance to the pitch from the tunnel to stop him bumping his head!

Derek from Dymchurch commented, 'What with the good weather and all these signings, it's been a difficult week for us moaners to find something to complain about.'

The official club site has now confirmed that Makienok has signed on a one year loan.

Charlton chase target man and midfielder

Michiel Kramer scored 17 goals for Den Haag last season and Charlton are one of three Championship clubs chasing him: Michiel Kramer

He is definitely leaving Den Haag and given his wish to come to London, it seems unlikely that he will go to Sheffield to become a massive. Hence, the real choice is between West London (Brentford) and SE7.

English and French sources are reporting that El Hadji Ba is to sign for Charlton: Signing. Of Sengalese descent, the 22-year old midfielder has played for Sunderland.

The signing of El Hadji Ba has now been confirmed by the club. See him score here: El Hadji Ba

Fredéric Bulot has been seen in South-East London, suggesting that his anticipated signing is imminent.
