City target signs for Charlton

Fast transfer wheeler-dealing has seen Tottenham's Andy Reid unexpectedly signing for Charlton Athletic this evening for a fee in the region of 3m, despite rumours that City were interested in his services.

Personally, I think that this is very fortunate as despite a lot of hype in his early career, Reid has failed to establish himself at Spurs and has been plagued by injuries. For that sort of money he's a risky signing so we should be grateful to Charlton for snatching him quickly before we signed him.

The bad news however is that City are still desperately short of a fit, pacy winger that can consistently deliver quality crosses.

Attention may now turn towards Brett Emerton, although Blackburn seem pretty confident that they will be able to persuade him to stay at Ewood Park.

With no other obvious available wingers from the Premiership or even the Championship for that matter, Pearce may be forced to scour the continent for a suitable player; he may well be now regretting letting Albert Riera go at the end of the last season after a short, but highly impressive loan spell. Time is not on his side though as the transfer window begins to draw to a close. Lets hope something happens soon.

Im a Spurs supporter and also thank Charlton very much for taking an average player who lacks pace and is injury prone off our hands for 3 million. We lost 1 million on his original price, but have been well compensated by his pal Michael Dawson coming with him from Forest and turning into an England International who could be worth 10 million now...nice one!

Psycho should try and do a deal with 'Boro for James Morrison as part ex in the Distin deal.

Some sucker had to buy him and lucky for you guys it was Charlton, the fact that we turned Sunderland down for similar money shows we must still feel sorry for them after last years showing.

I am sure that you would have been bleeting 'what an excellent buy' if it was you that had signed him. I for one am sorry to see him leave Tottenham without him having a decent run in the team, you cannot judge a player from a handful of games otherwise Mr. Henry would have left Arse*al after his 1st season!!

Im delighted that we didnt buy him, hes injury prone and overweight. 3m is alot of money to pay in todays market. I think city should break the bank to get James Milner at the club
