The rumour mill is linking Charlton with 30-year old striker Aaron McLean who is available from Hull City on a free transfer. It's a credible suggestion, but Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson wants to lure him back to London Road: Mc Lean. However, it is conceivable that McLean might prefer to join a Championship club.
Rumours about Leroy Lita have surfaced again. He has been told by Swansea City to pack his bags and left out of the Swans' pre-season tour in Holland. Sheffield Wednesday, where he was on loan last season, are one club definitely interested.
