The Adducks have been linked with securing a deal for Forest Green Rovers 32 goal hitman Stuart Fleetwood. The 22-year old is out of contract at the end of the season and is hoping to move away from non-league football. Crewe were thought to have tied up a deal for the Welsh U-21 striker earlier in the season with a £150,000 fee being agreed. Fleetwood rejected that move.
Charlton have also been linked with Plymouth right back Paul Connelly who is out of contract. Given that he is described as a 'powerful right back who likes to get forward' this raises questions about Moutaoukil's future with the club. His departure would be a disappointment to me.
Chris Dickson could have been quite a success last season if he hadn't been injured, but I wonder how much we should rely on non-league talent - or whether its our financial circumstances that forces us to do so.
Admittedly, the line between success and failure in football is a thin one. Ben Mackey played for Coventry City's first team at 16, but now turns out for Leamington. His ability to juggle the ball past three defenders then turn and score shows that he has real talent. The downside is revealed by the nickname sometimes used by opposition fans: 'McDonalds'.
Leamington have denied that Charlton have made an approach for Mackey.
