The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

GUY Luzon in­sists Charl­ton can cope with­out Rhoys Wiggins af­ter al­low­ing the left-back to put pen to pa­per with Sheffield Wed­nes­day.

Wiggins spent four years on Charl­ton’s books but was dis­placed in the Ad­dicks’ start­ing line-up by Mor­gan Fox af­ter suf­fer­ing an in­jury last sea­son.

And with the ar­rival of the ver­sa­tile Zakarya Bergdich from Real Val­ladolid over the sum­mer, Luzon says Charl­ton are not look­ing back with re­gret.

“We have two great left­backs in Zakarya Bergdich and Mor­gan Fox,” he said. “When you have this sit­u­a­tion you let him,Wiggins, go.

“Was he dis­ap­pointed? You would need to ask him. But I’m happy with the squad we have.

“He is a good player and he gave a lot for Charl­ton in the last cou­ple of years but now he will leave and it is good for him.”

Charl­ton re­main in the mar­ket for a goal­keeper af­ter con­firm­ing Stephen Hen­der­son is set to miss the start of the sea­son.

“The best case will be that Hen­der­son re­turns af­ter the first in­ter­na­tional break in Septem­ber,” added Luzon.

“We will miss him for five, six or seven games.

“Nick Pope will start the games and now we are search­ing for some­one who will be the sec­ond keeper.”

MOVE: Rhoys Wiggins
