Chris Powell says he has no plans to sign midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker, who has been training with the Addicks after his release from Bolton Wanderers last season.

Powell says Reo-Coker has been training with Charlton merely in a bid to keep fit and insists he does not intend to strike a deal for the 28-year-old.

“He’s been without a club and as a favour to him he’s been in and trained with the development squad while we’ve been training preparing for games,” said Powell.

“People are trying to put two and two together but basically he’s just come in and been training.

“We’ve just allowed him to do some ball work, that’s all.

“I must admit at the moment our intention isn’t to sign him.”
