Charlton chase Leeds youngster

According to the official Leeds United side, 18-year old utility man Simon Walton is in talks with Charlton about a potential move to the Premiership. United manager Kevin Blackwell said, 'We've had an approach from Charlton about Simon and have allowed him to speak to them. They are a Premiership club and it's potentially an opportunity for him. We're not going to stand in his way.'

The Leeds born England youth international made 33 appearances during his debut season two years ago, but started just four games last season. The 6ft 1" player is primarily a defender, but has been used in midfield.

Richard Murray has told the South London Press that Charlton expect to bring in six to eight signings before the start of the season.
