South London latest: Charlton sign another Belgian, Palace transfer update

Wilfried Zaha playing for Crystal Palace

Today's south London latest brings you all the biggest news from the last 24 hours regarding Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and Millwall.

1) Yoni Buyens joins Charlton on loan

Charlton have added another Belgian in midfielder Yoni Buyens from Standard Liege on a season-long loan spell.

The deal has now been officially announced on the club's official website, but Standard midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic, who spent the second half of last season with the Addicks, revealed that Buyens was making the move on his Twitter account earlier in the day.

"Charlton have signed a very good player, a true professional and a very nice man in Yoni Buyens. All the best," he said.

Buyens is a 26-year-old defensive midfielder who has spent the last three seasons with Standard Liege, making 93 appearances and scoring 12 goals and will now look to impress with the Championship club.

2) Palace look to add firepower

Crystal Palace are reportedly looking at bringing in Arsenal's Joel Campbell as well as former star and Manchester United outcast Wilfried Zaha.

Campbell has yet to play for the Gunners and the Eagles are reportedly looking at agreeing a season-long loan deal for the Costa Rican striker who has impressed at the World Cup.

Zaha has struggled during his first Premier League season at Manchester United and Steve Parish has revealed that the club would welcome the return of the winger.

It could be a loan spell but a transfer is not out of the question if Louis Van Gaal see's no United future for the 21-year-old.

"It depends on what the new Man United manager wants but also what my manager wants," Parish said.

3) Ian Holloway looks to bolster attacking options

Millwall are still looking to add to their striking options but will not be making too many changes to the squad for next season.

Holloway has lost Stefan Maierhofer and Simeon Jackson while Steve Morison has returned to Leeds following the end of his season-long loan, so The Lions will need more options in attack.

"I would like a few options for different teams we are playing against and I'm looking at the height in the forward area now.

"I haven't brought in Lee Gregory to deal with the ball back to front; he's going to float off and around someone like that," Holloway said.
