Former Reading FC Trialist Joins Championship Rivals

Former Newcastle defender and USA International Oguchi Onyewu has signed a short-term contract with Charlton two weeks after Reading declined to sign the 32-year-old.

Reading apparently turned down the chance to sign the former Sheffield Wednesday centre-back despite suffering a depth crisis in the position over the past few weeks.

However that hasn't stopped Championship rivals and Saturday's opponents Charlton from taking a short-term punt on the defender, penning him to a short-term deal.

With Anton Ferdinand returning to fitness it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have another out of fitness centre-back on the books but what are the odds he scores this weekend?
