Two summer targets named

Charlton are being linked with Aston Villa's JLloyd Samuel and Reading's James Harper as summer transfer targets. It is being suggested that the Addicks would pay £2 million for the Villa defender. Samuel told the Sun, 'I was at Charlton as a kid. Rumours linking me with a move back are flattering.' It's not the first time such rumours have been heard. Samuel gets some low key booing when he returns to The Valley, but is not regarded as being in the same category as 'Judas' Defoe.

Harper is a highly rated midfielder at Reading and the 25-year old is out of contract in the summer when he would be available on a free. The Royals would like to retain him for what looks like their first Premiership season and may be able to make a sufficiently tempting contract offer.
