Mark Gower: Charlton have signed midfielder on a one-year deal

Gower fell down the pecking order at Swansea following the arrival of manager Michael Laudrup and was loaned out to Charlton in March.

The 34-year-old featured regularly in the closing weeks of the campaign and Addicks boss Chris Powell was glad to secure the free agent's services on a permanent basis from July 1.

"Mark is a player who came in towards the end of last season and, after initially having to wait for his chance, made a real impact in the final few games," Powell told the club's website.

"He offers us good experience in the middle of the park, is a good user of the ball and has played in the Premier League with Swansea.

"He is a player I have had my eye on for a while, even before he joined us on loan, and he adds to the competition for places in midfield.

"Along with the likes of Andy Hughes, who signed a new contract last week, he is another good character and I'm very glad to have him on board for next season."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
