Wright-Phillips exits Charlton
Charlton have confirmed the departure of striker Bradley
Wright-Phillips after two and a half years with the Addicks.
The 28-year-old netted 32 goals in 87 appearances for the club
after becoming Chris Powell’s first signing in management.
Brentford, where he was on loan last season, are reportedly at
the head of the queue for the striker’s services after his contract
expired at The Valley.
“Bradley was my first signing so whatever happens with me and my
managerial career, you never forget your first,” Powell told the
club’s official website.
“I remember when I had the opportunity to bring Brad I said
‘right, let’s do it’. He came in scored goals straight away and
fitted in with the group immediately and then scored 22 goals when
we got promoted from League One.
“On behalf of myself, all my staff and all my players I want to
thank Brad for his contribution. I really wish him well because
he’s a fantastic young man and a fantastic character and we thank
him for his contribution to our wonderful football club.”
