League One transfers: Portsmouth given Josh Griffiths boost as rivals eye Wigan keeper | Stockley makes Charlton fans claim | Latics spending spree continues
Check out the latest transfer news emerging from League One...
Cheltenham Town are believed to be lining up a move for Wigan keeper Owen Evans (Gloucestershire Live).
The Robins, who have been linked with a return move for Pompey target Josh Griffiths, are targeting the former Wales under-21 international.
Although, it is not clear whether they are giving up re-signing West Brom stopper Griffiths, after he helped Cheltenham claim the League Two title last season.
Twenty-four-year-old Evans made 13 loan appearances for the Robbins during the second half of the 2019-20 season and reportedly made a favourable impression.
Charlton new-boy Jayden Stockley who turned down a move to Pompey, says he looking forward to playing in front of the Valey fans after signing a three-year deal with the club. Despite playing in front of empty stands during his loan spell in south London last season, the striker said he had developed a bond which he was keen to renew (Charlton Athletic website).
He said: ‘Sometimes you get that bond with the fans, and I got that even though they weren’t there. It almost goes beyond football. Just having the chance to experience each other. I want to give everything I can to the team. I want to build on the platform that I’ve already put down at the club in the games that I’ve played so far. You can never take it for granted once you feel a good fit at a club.’
