Roland’s cash splash displays ambition as Vitokele signs

Today saw the signing of striker Igor Votekele from Danish side FC Copenhagen


Despite new coach Bob Peeters stated ambition of only 'doing better than last season', the signing of the Angolan forward for an undisclosed fee believed to be a whopping £2.4m an amount not seen for some years at Charlton would seem to suggest the club's sights are set somewhat higher with promotion the goal.

Of course one striker does not a season make, but along with season long loan signing of Liege player Yoni Buyens, and possibly more signing to come, add to that a new pitch, new seats, and other ground refurbishments, and more ambitious plans to develop the training ground things seem to be looking upwards at the Valley. Fans will perhaps be hoping this convinces out of contract Morrison and Poyet to sign up to new deals.
