According to Skysports.com, Charlton are on the verge of signing of Senegal defender Souleymane Diawara.
Ian Dowie is keen on strengthening the squad after a less than impressive first few matches and sees the signing of a new defender as the perfect opportunity to sort out the number of goals we concede. Diawara has been long linked with a move to England and Charlton were carefully watching developments at Sochaux ready to pounce on the chance to lure him to the Valley, and it worked.
Both clubs have agreed a fee for the towering defender and a three year contract deal has already been negotiated by the club, having already passed his medical it is only a matter of completing the necessary formalities before Diawara becomes the latest addition to The Addicks.
This move is, personally, a welcome one in my eyes and is certainly a step in the right direction to securing a top 10 position.
