Charlton have signed midfielder Tom Soares from Stoke City. The 22-year old England Under21 international and former Crystal Palace player has been signed on a 93-day emergency loan deal that includes a 28-day loan clause. He is expected to appear for Charlton against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
Some of the Addickted consider that he was a player we should have tried to get a few years ago. Although he is sometimes described as someone who plays on the right side of midfield, he is really more of a central midfielder and thus provides cover for the injured Semedo.
However, a deal that would have seen Andy Gray move in the opposite direction has fallen through.
Izale McLeod has joined Millwall for the rest of the season.
