Charlton Athletic are set to sign the Swindon Town goalkeeper Lewis Ward on a permanent transfer, according to the South London Press.


The Addicks are winless in their last eight league games under new boss Michael Appleton.


Charlton manager Appleton wants to turn the situation around and is in the market to strengthen his squad in this month’s transfer window.




Goalkeeper is a position Charlton have on their agenda and several players have been linked with them regarding a move.


It is suggested that Appleton has identified Swindon goalkeeper Ward as a good fit for the Addicks and is moving to sign him on a permanent deal.



The 26-year-old joined the League Two outfit in the summer of 2023 on a free transfer and has so far had five outings for Swindon in the league.


Ward has done enough to convince Charlton and they want to bring him on board.



Charlton are set to face Burton Albion away from home at the weekend and it remains to bee seen whether the Addicks will be able to add more fresh faces before that game.
