Sengalese SE7

Sky Sports News are reporting that Charlton are closing to signing Sengalese defender Souleymane Diawara. He will be the second Sengalese international in the Charlton squad. French side Sochaux were hoping to keep Diawara at the club, but they knew they were facing a losing battle to keep hold of the African.

Charlton have held talks with Diawara after agreeing a fee with Sochaux and the player's agent Lee Anderson confirmed a deal was close to being completed.
'Souleymane is going to Charlton as both clubs have agreed a fee,' Anderson told 'He has had talks and passed his medical at the club. Souleymane has agreed a three-year deal and he should complete the formalities of the deal soon.'

Hopefully, there will not be any work permit problems as he probably has French (EU) as well as Sengalese citizenship. Some of the Addickted have doubted whether he represents a good buy, but the Addicks defence certainly needs shoring up.
