According to Richard Cawley, Charlton Athletic are looking to sign Swindon Town goalkeeper Lewis Ward.
Charlton Athletic are negotiating a deal to sign the League Two goalkeeper to improve their squad.
Ward, 26, relocated to the County Ground in August but could be on the move again this winter.
According to London News Online reporter Cawley on X, the Addicks want to sign him on a ‘permanent’ basis.
Charlton Athletic eye Ward, a Swindon Town player, would provide Charlton with further competition and depth in goal as they aim to cut the gap to the play-offs this season.
During the first half of current season, the former England youth international has made eight appearances in all competitions for Swindon, five of which have been in the league.
He began his career at Reading and progressed through the Royals’ academy divisions.
However, he never made a senior appearance for the Berkshire club, instead gaining experience on loan at Whitehawk, Fylkir, Hungerford Town, Aldershot Town, Northampton Town and Forest Green Rovers.
Ward left Reading in 2019 and spent two years at Exeter City, including a loan spell at Portsmouth. Overall, he played 33 games for the Grecians.
Swindon have signed him twice in the last two years, and he returned to Wiltshire after a spell with Sutton United. However, it appears he will be leaving the Robins again.
Charlton are currently in 13th place in the third tier league, 16 points behind the top six following their 2-1 loss to Peterborough United last time out.
