Addicks poised to sign Tyrone Mears

The Addicks are reported to have made a bid for Preston defender Tyrone Mears is to looking to secure a move to Charlton. Iain Dowie is said to be a big fan of the young attacking full back and the club is said to be offering £1.5 million. He was formerly with the Massives but was signed by the Invincibles for a bargain £150,000.

Mears is hoping Preston will agree to sell him so that he can play in the Premiership. 'I want to play in The Premiership against the best players like any
ambitious player,' Mears told His agent Willie McKay [sic] said, 'There have been a lot of different clubs linked with Tyrone and now one has
made an offer he is hoping the move can be made. The two clubs are negotiating and Tyrone hopes things can be resolved soon and that we can then discuss personal terms.'

Given that Mears is a right back, this might be further confirmation that Luke Young is on his way to the Irons against whom Charlton play in their first game of the season.

We once had a German Shepherd called Tyrone, but that was before the days of dog reporters.
