Charlton Athletic announce free agent Hull City midfielder on three-year deal

Charlton Athletic have announced the signing of Greg Docherty on a three-year deal.

The Scottish midfielder was a free agent after being released by Hull City at the end of his contract.

The 27-year-old made 143 appearances and lifted the Sky Bet League One title during his debut season with the Tigers.

He becomes Nathan Jones’ sixth signing of the summer window.

Jones commented: “We’re really delighted to get this signing over the line, he’s someone we’ve been chasing for a long time, all through the summer. 

“He’s a player that has been promoted from this league and has been a Championship player for a long period of time. He has real pedigree as a person, an athlete and a player. 

“He’s someone that we’re really thrilled to have acquired, again we’ve had to beat off a lot of opposition for his signature. He’ll add real competition, real strength, real leadership qualities to the team and there is big scope for him to develop and move forward with us.”

Technical director Andy Scott added: “Greg is a player who we have had a strong interest in since we came to the club and the fact that we have managed to secure his signature with the options he had is really pleasing.

“He’s a player with lots of different qualities and is ideally suited to Nathan’s style. 

“We’ve all worked very hard to get this over the line and Greg adds another very strong midfield option, bringing quality on the ball, tenacity, leadership, outstanding professionalism and game understanding to the group. 

“We look forward to seeing him in a Charlton shirt and I’m sure he’ll quickly become a fans’ favourite.”
