The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Tom Black­ett

CHARL­TON have pulled of a trans­fer coup by sign­ing Wales in­ter­na­tional Jonny Wil­liams from Crys­tal Palace.

The 25-year-old mid­fielder has put pen to paper on a six-month con­tract at The Val­ley, be­com­ing man­ager Lee Bowyer’s first sign­ing of the Janu-ary win­dow. Wil­liams came through the ranks at Palace and has had loan spells at Ips-wich, Not­ting­ham For­est, MK Dons and Sun­der­land.

Bowyer said: “He’s a very good player. He’s good in pos­ses­sion, he’s clever, he works hard and he’s ev­ery­thing that I want from a mid­field player.”

Wil­liams is keen to play his part in Charl­ton’s pro­mo­tion push.

“They are a good, tal­ented bunch of play­ers,” he said. “I’m hope­ful to add to that and I’m ex­cited to work with them and hope­fully get the club back into the Cham­pi­onship,”

Wil­liams made his de­but as a sub­sti­tute in yes­ter­day’s 1-1 home draw against Sun­der­land.
