Charlton Athletic are planning a move for Gillingham star Josh Wright, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Wright enjoyed an outstanding season with Gillingham last term in League One cleaning the board at the club's end of season awards.

The 27-year-old finished as the club's top scorer, netting 14 goals from midfield and his goals and performances played a key part in helping the club stay up last season.

The former England Under-19 international's performances have not gone unnoticed among other clubs and his suitors are weighing up offers for Wright.

Wright is entering the final year of his contract at the Priestfield and Gillingham are bracing themselves for offers for the midfield playmaker.

Charlton boss Karl Robinson is a big admirer of Wright and sees him as a key addition to his plans as he looks to build a side capable of challenging for promotion from League One next season.

Wright began his career at Charlton and he was fast-tracked into the first-team at the age of 16 by then-manager Alan Pardew and now the Addicks are looking to bring the midfielder back to the Valley.
