Charlton Athletic are pleased to confirm that Adam Matthews has signed a new contract with the club.
The Wales international played a vital role in the Addicks strong finish to the 2020/21 campaign and returns for a third consecutive season with Charlton.
The 29-year-old right back explained: “I said from the end of last season I wanted to stay at Charlton. I spoke to the manager a couple of times and he seems to really want me here, so that’s always a good sign. I’m looking forward to getting started, getting back with the boys and hopefully helping us this season. It’s nice to get it done earlier than last year.”
Manager Nigel Adkins said: “Adam was an important part of our strong finish to last season. He is a good player and brings us valuable experience too, so I’m really pleased he will be back with us next season and I’m looking forward to working with him again.”
Matthews has played 58 games over two seasons for the Addicks and has signed a one-year deal with the club.
He becomes the fourth player to sign a new contract with the Addicks following Jason Pearce, Ben Watson and Jake Forster-Caskey. He joins new signings Jayden Stockley, Craig MacGillivray and George Dobson at The Valley.
Owner Thomas Sandgaard met Matthews at the club’s training ground on Wednesday. He said: “I am delighted we’ve been able to bring Adam back to The Valley. I was very impressed with the way he played after the arrival of Nigel Adkins, so I’m excited to see him back at Charlton this season.”
