Charlton have signed 18-year old Australian centre back Ryan Blumberg from the Nike football academy: Ryan Blumberg
Charlton liked his leadership qualities on and off the pitch and his physique as a big, strong defender.
For his part, Blumberg said: 'Charlton is obviously a big and well renowned club in the UK, playing most of their football over the last decade or so in the Premier League and Championship so their reputation around the world is of high regard. I knew that the club had a history of producing many good youth players with the likes of Joe Gomez and Ademola Lookman coming through the academy and into the first, which led to them securing deals with top Premier League clubs.'
Charlton are close to concluding a deal to sign Jay DaSilva on a season long loan: Close to deal
