LATEST UPDATE : Charlton Athletic must sort Coventry City agreement for Nathan Jones promotion push: View

The forward obviously has a frightening eye for goal. Charlton Athletic’s appointment of former Luton Town manager Nathan Jones in February, following dismal results under previous manager Michael Appleton, demonstrated the club’s ambition.

Despite a disastrous period in the Premier League with Southampton in 2022/23, Jones is still widely appreciated by Football League analysts due to his remarkable performances with the Hatters.

The Welshman gained promotion from League Two to League One with Kenilworth Road in 2018, before leaving the Bedfordshire club to join Stoke City in January 2019.

Despite his departure, the Hatters were able to win the 2019 League One title, securing their second-tier status and finishing 19th in the 2019/20 season.

Jones would return to Luton for the 2020/21 season, steering the Hatters to a top-half Championship finish before leading them to the play-offs in 2022.
The Addicks will likely be impressed by Jones’ achievements, while Valley fans will hope that their team can mount its own promotion push in 2024/25.

The former Hatters manager has already demonstrated good results with the London club, as he supervised a 14-game undefeated streak after losing his first game in charge to Reading on February 10th.

A final-day defeat to Wycombe Wanderers is unlikely to have dampened hopes at the Valley, and a promotion push may depend on the success of the approaching summer transfer window.

The Addicks have been connected with Coventry City’s Matty Godden.

According to the South London Press & Mercury, the Addicks are interested in signing Sky Blues forward Matty Godden, who has been a valuable member of the club for many years.

Godden scored 14 goals in just 26 third-tier appearances when Mark Robins’ side was promoted from League One to the Championship following the abbreviated 2019/20 season, before helping the Sky Blues maintain their Championship position by scoring six goals in the 2020/21 season.
During the 2021/22 season, the 32-year-old scored his most goals in the second tier, 12 in 24 games, as Robins and his teammates finished in the top half.

The Sky Blues advanced to the 2023 Championship play-off final, where they were eliminated in a penalty shoot-out by Luton, but Godden played an important part in the regular season, scoring eight goals and assisting four times.

Godden might be an important addition for the Addicks.
The forward definitely has a dangerous eye for goal, but he may be most effective when he can assist an even more clinical goal scorer.

For two and a half seasons, Godden was the ideal complement to the lethal Viktor Gyokeres, who scored 21 goals in the 2022/23 Championship season, including the playoffs.

He may play a similar position in the Valley, with Alfie May, who is undoubtedly the top striker in League One, having won the 2023/24 golden boot with 23 goals despite the Addicks’ bottom half finish.

May also had a deadly eye for goal at his former club, Cheltenham Town, when he scored 20 third-tier goals in 2022/23, after scoring 23 the previous season.

Under Jones’ leadership, Godden and May could form a fearsome strike combination capable of giving the Addicks significant promotion credentials, thus the club must seek a deal for the Sky Blues player.
