COULD THIS GUY BE ON CHARLTON'S SHOPPING LIST?

15-Apr 14:37, by Ketts

Was an Addicks target on view at the Ricoh on Friday?

The Addicks tried to sign Dagenham & Redbridge winger Jodi Jones twice during the 2015/16 season.

Charlton came close to signing Jones in the summer window, and made another move for him in the January ‎window.

Eventually, Jones signed for Coventry on an emergency loan deal last March, and completed a permanent four-year deal in the summer of 2016.

‎Now 19-years-old, Jones gave Chris Solly a difficult afternoon at the Ricoh on Friday. 

Though he is unlikely to be on big money at the Ricoh, Coventry will look to reduce costs after their relegation to League 2, and might consider offers for Jones.

Also, the physicality of League 2 may not suit Jones' style.‎

‎Karl Robinson wants to recruit players early, and young up-and-coming players will figure high on his wanted list.

Perhaps it could be a case of third time lucky for the Addicks if they make another move for Jones.
