Football News Update: Charlton Athletic Sign Coventry City Striker Matty Godden

In a significant move within the football transfer market, Charlton Athletic have secured the signing of Coventry City striker Matty Godden for an undisclosed fee. The 32-year-old forward has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the League One side, with the club also holding an option for a further year.

Godden’s transfer comes after a successful five-year stint at Coventry City, during which he netted 50 goals in 156 appearances. The striker initially joined the Sky Blues from Peterborough United and played a crucial role in the club’s promotion to the Championship in 2020.

Charlton boss Nathan Jones expressed his delight at securing Godden’s services, stating, “> Matty’s a fantastic acquisition for the football club – he has proven pedigree and is a proven goalscorer at every level he has played. We’ve chased him all summer and he’s shown a real desire to want to come and sign for the football club, so I’m delighted he’s joining us.”

Godden’s move to Charlton Athletic comes after the departure of Alfie May, who left The Valley on Tuesday to join League One rivals Birmingham City.

Coventry City manager Mark Robins praised Godden’s contributions to the club, saying, “> Matty has made a significant contribution to our rise up the leagues, including being integral to our League One title win and then establishing ourselves in the Championship. He will be fondly remembered by Sky Blues supporters for many years to come for what he has achieved here, and we wish him the best of luck for the future.”

With Godden’s arrival, Charlton Athletic have reinforced their attacking options as they prepare for the upcoming season, which promises to be filled with excitement and drama in the race for promotion to the EFL Championship.
