Will we ever learn?
Charlton have said to bid £380,000 for Standard Leige defender Jorge Teixeira according to Belgium newspaper Le Soir.
The 29 year old from Portugal who came through Sporting’s youth system is available for transfer and the more cynical amongst us would say that Roland needs to pay his old club some money as the Tony Watt transfer fee won’t be initially forthcoming.
Teixeira will be the 4th centre half that the club has signed (under three head coaches) as they attempt to find someone half as good as Michael Morrison!
The Portuguese spent 2 years playing in Cyprus, had a season in Israel for Maccabi Haifa but did spend 4 seasons at FC Zurich in Switzerland’s top division playing for FC Zurich. He joined Standard Liege on a free transfer in the summer of 2014 and played his last 1st team game in early November. He played 10 games under Riga, in his last spell in charge of the Belgians.
Standard Liege. Really?
