Three in at The Valley

Striker Paul Hayes, left back Cedric Evina and midfielder Mikel Alonso have joined Charlton. The Addicks fought off interest from Scunthorpe and Doncaster to secure the signature of Hayes on a two year contract: Hayes

It seems to me to be likely that Hayes and Wright-Phillips will be the favoured strike partnership with Benson coming on from the bench.

19-year old Evina is a former Arsenal trainee and turned down a fresh deal at Oldham to be nearer to London and his family. More about Evina can be found here: Evina

One Addick has commented about him, 'Cedric Evina might prove to be a bit of a coup. He was captain of the Arsenal youth team that took Liverpool apart a couple of years ago but was released soon afterwards and joined Oldham. He's a left back, although his pace allows him to play quite high up the pitch and he has been taking
corners at Oldham I believe. He played against us for them and caused no end of problems.'

31-year old Mikel Alonso, whose younger brother plays for Real Madrid, decided to leave Tenerife after they were relegated to the third tier of Spanish football.

BBC London Sport are talking about six more signings!
