Charlton Athletic keeper could be early transfer in January window

Craig MacGillivray could be an early mover in this month’s transfer window, with the Charlton Athletic goalkeeper attracting firm interest.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season and the Addicks are understood to not be seeking a fee for the former Portsmouth stopper.

Ashley Maynard-Brewer has impressed since stepping into the side in December with the Australian one of the heroes of their EFL Cup penalty shootout victory over Brighton.

MacGillivray had been set to deputise for Joe Wollacott, who saw his dream of representing Ghana wrecked by a broken finger sustained in the warm-up at Burton Albion on November 12. But MacGillivray sustained delayed concussion after that fixture – which ended a 3-3 draw – and then had to follow medical protocols before he was cleared to return.

He did start the 1-0 home loss to Cheltenham, his failed headed clearance punished by Alfie May for the only goal, and also the 3-1 defeat to Stockport in the FA Cup second round replay at Edgeley Park.

MacGillivray featured 45 times for the Addicks last season after joining in June 2021. He was a free agent after Portsmouth opted not to offer him a contract extension.
