3 free agent goalkeepers Charlton Athletic should consider after Appleton’s transfer admission

Michael Appleton, the manager of Charlton Athletic, has stated that the club would keep an eye on the free agent market for a goalkeeper.
Following Harry Isted’s injury, Charlton Athletic may require some goalkeeping cover. Last night, the Addicks defeated Exeter City 4-1 at home in League One.

Against the Grecians, they started Ashley Maynard-Brewer in goal. On the bench was a young Henry Molyneux.

According to London News Online, Appleton stated, “I think the only way we’re going to get someone in without potentially, god forbid, Ash (Maynard-Brewer) getting injured is people who are free transfers.” There are still two or three out there that could work.”


Jed Steer

The former Charlton loan man cut ties with Aston Villa at the end of last season and is still available. The 31-year-old, who was an England youth international earlier in his career, spent 10 years at Villa Park.

Steer went on to make 36 appearances for the Premier League side in all competitions during his decade there. He also had loan spells away at Doncaster Rovers, Huddersfield Town and Luton Town, as well as the Addicks.

Matt Macey

He is a decent option for Appleton as he weighs up his goalkeeping options. The ex-Arsenal man left top flight new boys Luton at the start of September.


Macey has since been considering his alternatives in order to return to the game. Last season, he spent 21 games on loan at Portsmouth in the third division.

Joe Lewis

The 35-year-old is a seasoned goalkeeper with 538 career matches to his name. He became a free agent after his contract with Aberdeen expired in late June.

Lewis joined Celtic in 2016 after playing for Norwich City, Peterborough United, and Cardiff City. Charlton might keep an eye on the Suffolk-born man as they consider their options.
