Swindon Town and Charlton Athletic have announced that the clubs have agreed a deal to send top goal scorer Nicky Ajose to Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee.

Ajose was Town’s top goal scorer last season and was looking to join a Championship side after he failed to make an impression at Leeds United.

Ajose stated that he could not turn down a club the size of Charlton.

After completing the deal Ajose spoke to the Charlton Athletic official website.

Speaking the site Ajose said, From a personal point of view, it was really nice to get a good tally of goals last year and I feel like if I can do something similar next year then it could end in promotion.

‘My aspirations for next season were to be playing in the Championship but when a team like Charlton come calling then I felt it was an opportunity that I could not turn down.

‘I`m delighted to have it all signed so early and am really looking forward to getting started.”

It is believed the agreed fee is in the region of £800,000.
