Addicks chase new signings

Sky Sports News reports that the Addicks are chasing South American midfielder Omar Pouso. The Uruguyan is currently with Penarol in his homeland, although Danubio own his registration.

South American sources now claim that the midfielder is on his way to England to undergo talks with The Addicks. Given the length of the journey, let's hope it will be possible to secure a work permit for him. Pouso scored a spectacular goal at Anfield for Uruguay against England in March this year, whether that is a plus or a minus for the Home Office is not certain.

According to reports emanating from the French press, Charlton are interested in 27-year old Sochaux defender Souleymane Diawara and hope to tie up a deal before the transfer deadline. Diawara is a full Senegal international who has proven his credentials in the past few seasons with a series of impressive Ligue 1 displays and was previously being tracked by Newcastle and Portsmouth.

However, he would cost £4 million which is expensive by Charlton standards, particularly given the amount we have spent already. However, considerable savings on the wages front could be made if Jason Euell finally leaves The Valley as is now being reported.

Admittedly the reports come from his agent, but it is claimed to be Premiership sides like Boro, Pompey and Wigan that are interested.
