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.”
