Charlton sign Crewe winger Charlie Kirk

Charlton Athletic have confirmed the permanent signing of winger Charlie Kirk from Crewe Alexandra for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old has notched 24 goals and 32 assists in league games over the last three seasons for the Addicks’ League One rivals. He has signed a four-year contract with the Addicks.

Cheshire-born Kirk, who has not played in either of Alex’s two games this campaign, was a target for Charlton in January but a deal could not be done.

He said: “I am excited to get it over the line. I’m buzzing to be here – the stadium is unbelievable! I watched the game on tv on Saturday night – you could just feel it from there. It was unbelievable, so I can’t wait to walk out for the first time in front of all the fans.”

Manager Nigel Adkins said: “I am delighted that Charlie Kirk is joining us. He is a very talented and exciting, young, forward-thinking player and I’m really looking forward to working with him over the coming years.”

Owner Thomas Sandgaard said: “I am very pleased we have been able to sign Charlie. He is one of the best wingers in the league. I am sure he is a player our fans will enjoy watching. He creates and scores goals.”

Kirk becomes the sixth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Jayden Stockley, Craig MacGillivray, George Dobson, Akin Famewo and Sean Clare.

The winger is a product of the Crewe youth academy and made his first-team debut in 2016 at the age of 19. He went on to play 181 games for Crewe, scoring 29 goals and was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Season during their promotion year in 2019-20.
