Adam Matthews already feels at home after signing a one-year deal with Charlton Athletic.

The 27-year-old put pen to paper on the deal after impressing manager Lee Bowyer

Whilst trialling at the club.

Matthews has been without a club since his Sunderland contract expired in the summer.

The Welsh international will be available for Charlton’s next Championship fixture and offer Bowyer another option at right-back with Chris Solly the only specialist in the position at The Valley.

Speaking to CAFC Official, the former Cardiff City, Celtic and Sunderland man said:

“I’m excited.

“I know Jonny (Williams) and Tom (Lockyer) well from Wales and I played with Beram (Kayal) at Celtic, so it’s been quite an easy transition for me and I’ve been training with the lads for a few weeks now, so I feel I can slot right in.”

“It’s been a tough summer for me personally, not knowing what was going to happen, so I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to come and train to the boys.

“I want to kick on now and, firstly, stay in the division, but the lads have started really well, so hopefully we can keep that going.

The Matthews signings is Charlton’s 15th of a busy summer for the SE7 outfit, and Director and former Head of Recruitment Steve Gallen said:

“He’s a good right-back who is very attacking and loves getting forward which is something that Lee was keen on in particular.

“He’s completely proved his fitness and that he’s got a good attitude so he fully deserves the offer of a contract and balances out the squad. We wanted two players for every position and now we’ve finally got that.”
