Ben Purrington has signing a three-year deal with Charlton after completing his move from Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee.

The left-back, who scored the equaliser in the Wembley Play-Off final against Sunderland becomes Lee Bowyer’s fourth summer signing joining the Addicks.

Making 21 appearances after joining Charlton on loan in January, the 23-year-old was part of a solid Addicks back-line that conceded just 12 times when he was in the side.

Purrington completed a medical before finalising the paperwork for the transfer in Portugal as he joined his new teammates at the sides warm weather training camp.

"It’s a great feeling to be back with the boys," Purrington said.

"I see that same togetherness feel that we had last year.

"It’s a pleasure to be back, I can’t wait to get started.

There is no better feeling now than being back especially after the unbelievable year we had last year."

Bowyer, who earlier in the transfer window said he was keen to land another left-back with Lewis Page the only recognised left-sided full-back at the club, alsoi expressed his delight to have Purrington in the ranks.

"It’s great to have Ben back, he did so well for us last season.

"He came in during January and in total I think we lost two games the whole time he was with us and he scored at Wembley.

"He’s great, has a great attitude, he’s young, he wants to learn and he’s a winner, so all the boxes were ticked with Ben.

"He knows the group already, so that’s an advantage, so it was a nice surprise for the lads when he rocked up for lunch this afternoon."
