Former Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is set to sign for Charlton Athletic.

The Daily Mail says Reo-Coker is on the verge of joining Championship strugglers Charlton on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old former West Ham and Aston Villa midfielder, who left Bolton at the end of last season, has been looking for a club all summer and Chris Powell is prepared to take him on.
