The Next Charlton Athletic Summer Signing Confirmed

A defender for Millwall who was on loan at Lincoln City last season, has agreed to a deal with Charlton Athletic. based on Football Insider’s report.

The Lions have accepted a proposal from the South London club, and he is getting closer to rejoining League One.

Alex Mitchell, 22-year-old centre back played 41 games in all competitions and scored once at the LNER Stadium during the previous season, while on loan in the East Midlands, where he made an impression. The Imps finished seventh in League One, just missing out on the play-offs. Under Michael Skubala, the team went on a tear, winning 10 of those games and falling two points short of Oxford United for the final play-off berth. He started all 15 of those games.

Mitchell has made 111 appearances in his career so far, scoring twice. Despite this, he has had difficulty breaking into the The Den lineup, appearing just once for the team he joined at the age of 16. The highly-regarded centre back has played a large part of the past several seasons on loan, having previously had short stints with Leyton Orient, Bromley, and St Johnstone.

After bringing in goalie Will Mannion, defender Josh Edwards, and midfielder Luke Berry from Cambridge United, Dunfermline, and Luton Town, respectively, the defender would be The Valley’s fourth summer addition.

Although they did improve after hiring former Southampton and Luton manager Nathan Jones in February, Charlton will be looking to improve on their 16th-place finish in the third division last season.

The defender would be The Valley’s fourth summer acquisition, following the arrivals of midfielder Luke Berry, goalie Will Mannion, and defender Josh Edwards from Luton Town, Dunfermline, and Cambridge United, respectively.

Despite showing improvement after bringing in former Southampton and Luton manager Nathan Jones in February, Charlton will aim to surpass their third division finish of 16th last year.

Since Mitchell has played a large portion of his brief career on loan, this season was always going to be crucial. Given how much he thrived at Lincoln, sliding down a division makes sense, and he’s obviously not expected to play much at Millwall.

Nathan Jones isn’t scared to make moves in the transfer market, which is wonderful news for Charlton as they aim to bolster ahead of the season. They can be certain that they will be back at the top of the table at the end of the season if they have Mitchell in their backline.
