Charlton Athletic Sign Ex-Manchester United Winger Chris Eagles

Chris Eagles

It has been reported that Charlton Athletic have snapped up former Manchester United midfielder Chris Eagles.

Charlton boss Guy Luzon is delighted to have signed the 29 year-old free agent.

Luzon said: “I’m sure he will help us. He is an attacking midfielder who can also play behind a striker. He is a player with quality and a good character.”

Eagles revealed he tried to join Charlton last season, but the move failed to materialise.

Eagles said: “We touched base [with Charlton] last season, but Bolton wouldn’t let me come.

“I came down Monday, trained, had a fitness test and everything was alright. Then on Wednesday night I agreed to it. I just wanted to get it done.

“I’ve had a great feeling about being here, it’s a massive club.

“I’m over the moon to be here and as soon as I knew they wanted to sign me it didn’t matter what they offered me I just wanted to be here.”
