Charlton made an unsuccessful attempt to sign former loan player in the dying hours of the transfer window, a Millwall site has revealed. But Millwall did not want to leave themselves short of cover at the eleventh-hour and talks barely got off the ground. A swap deal involving Danny Haynes was briefly discussed but then dismissed.
The Addicks have been keen to sign N'Guessan ever since he impressed while on loan at The Valley last season and the 25-year-old had been expected to make the move permanent last August. But the Frenchman has featured on a regular basis for Millwall in recent months after starting the campaign on the fringes of the squad and manager Jackett would be reluctant to lose him at this stage.
