Nathan Jones, Charlton Athletic’s manager, has the opportunity to add additional players to his recently inherited roster this summer.
Charlton Athletic hired the former Luton Town manager to replace Michael Appleton, and he has subsequently performed admirably for the League One club.

The Addicks have lifted beyond the relegation zone and can now look forward to the next transfer window.

They were linked with Hull City midfielder Greg Docherty in January, along with fellow third-tier club Bristol Rovers, according to X writer Darren Witcoop, and should renew their interest in him at the end of the season.

Charlton Athletic should target midfielder

Docherty’s contract at the MKM Stadium expires in late June, and he will become a free agent as things are.

The Scotsman is below the Tigers’ pecking order due to the presence of other good midfield options such as Jean Michael Seri, Tyler Morton, and Regan Slater.

A transfer elsewhere would allow him to play more first-team games, and Charlton would be an excellent next step for him.
Docherty understands what it takes to move out of the third tier, having helped Hull win the title in his debut year in 2021 under former manager Grant McCann.
He joined East Yorkshire in 2020 and has since made 141 appearances across all competitions, 16 of which have occurred this season, scoring seven goals.

The Glasgow-born man rose up through the ranks at Hamilton Academical and broke into their first-team before being snapped up by Rangers. He then played 19 matches for the Gers, as well as having loan spells away from Ibrox at Shrewsbury Town and Hibernian to get some experience.

Docherty would add competition and depth to Charlton’s midfield choices, as well as quality to their squad.

Luring him down a division would also be a show of intent from the Addicks, who hope to challenge at the top end of the table next year under Jones.
