Oztumer to 'Fight For His Place' as He Joins Charlton on a Two-Year Deal

Former Walsall playmaker Erhun Oztumer, who recently secured his release from troubled League One outfit Bolton Wanderers, has now completed a free transfer to Charlton Athletic - bringing to an end his nightmare spell in the North West.
Erhun joined the Trotters at the start of last season after making almost one-hundred appearances over two seasons with the Saddlers, bagging thirty-two goals and earning himself a place in supporters' hearts after entering several superb displays.

Greenwich-born Oztumer made a total of eighteen first-team appearances for the then-Championship Bolton last season but ultimately struggled to make an impact at the University of Bolton Stadium, often failing to make the matchday squad.

The former Dulwich Hamlet and Peterborough United man has found himself in a difficult situation as Wanderers are going through an administration process with a group known as 'Football Ventures' looking set to complete a takeover in the near future.

Oztumer was part of the Addicks' youth system between 1999 and 2007 and is delighted to be back at the Valley. He said; "I'm a local lad and I've kept an eye on Charlton since I left, so I'm happy to be happy to be here, playing in the Championship. The team has started really well so I'll fight for my place, work hard and see where it takes us."
