Two further signings see Hughes contract extended until the end of next season, and Gower makes the loan switch permanent, also with a one year deal. I am a little surprised to see both of them offered extensions, but it is probably a further indication of how tight money is, and any chance of a marquee signing are undoubtedly fanciful given the financial position of the club anyway.
Evina stalling on a one year deal was more predictable given his comments on Twitter a few weeks ago, and as yet, nothing on the future of Wright-Phillips, but again I would expect him to be shown the door. What is of more concern to me is the perfect storm that is brewing for the end of next season, when technically Charlton could be left with just two senior pro players. Unlikely to happen I know, but it does leave the club looking vulnerable, and in the case of our more saleable assets, will decrease any transfer fee value that might be commanded for a player who was on a longer deal than just one year.
