Former West Ham midfielder Alou Diarra is on trial at Charlton and could sign next week if he impresses. Luzon is in the market for a central midfielder after Johnnie Jackson was ruled out for a month with a leg injury. Buyens is also out for two matches after picking up his tenth yellow card of the season.
However, one Addick commented, 'Since he did not impress in a recent trial in the US I doubt that he could help us. Apart from a few name players in their declining years MLS is about League 1 level.' Diarra was at Chicago Fire, but was let go: Alou Diarra
Any offer to the 33-year old, a one time French international, would be on a short-term basis to meet current needs.
