Charlton Athletic agree deal for Millwall defender Alex Mitchell

Charlton have agreed a fee with Millwall for centre-back Alex Mitchell.

The South London Press understands that personal terms have also been agreed with the 22-year-old, who still has 12 months remaining on his Den deal.

Our paper broke the news that Mitchell was set to make the switch across South London to the League One club.

The defender spent last season on loan at Lincoln City and made 41 appearances in all competitions.

Mitchell’s first temporary spell away from Millwall was at Bromley in non-league and he has since gained experience at St Johnstone and Leyton Orient.

He spoke to our paper about fully committing to his Imps loan last season.

“When I am up here I like to be up here, if you get me, I feel like if you have got one eye on home and one eye here then you are probably not as efficient or good on the pitch,” he said.

“This loan has been a bit different. It’s the first time I’ve brought furniture up and stuff like that. Normally I just stay up here and don’t really go back home.

“I remember when I was at Orient, Kenny Jackett used to bang on about trying not to drive as much as possible – to save the hamstrings. He has got so much experience. You learn things from your loans and that’s one that I’ve taken in.”

Charlton are also expected to push through a deal for Josh Edwards next week when the Dunfermline left-sided defender returns from his summer break.
