Two things Charlton Athletic will be getting from ex-Bolton Wanderers man

Bolton Wanderers confirmed the departure of another player yesterday, Erhun Otzumer. The Football Manc Cave are looking at two things he will bring to his new club, Charlton Athletic.

With all the financial problems behind the scenes at Bolton, a lot of players have walked over the summer and Otzumer has finally decided enough is enough. He hardly got any playing time Under Phil Parkinson despite being more of an exciting prospect than most.

Charlton has now made a statement to confirm they have signed the midfielder. The 28-year-old has gone on a free transfer on a two-year deal. He nearly went to Charlton back in January and now that he feels his time at Bolton is ready to be up, he has put pen to paper. Otzumer also will feel like he’s back at home after spending time with Charlton’s youth and academy ranks when he was younger.

Here are two things he will bring to Charlton…


A lot of Bolton fans have been reacting to the news of his departure talking about how he didn’t get the chance to shine at the Trotters. Phil Parkinson’s style of play is very boring in a lot of Bolton fans opinions and this is probably why the midfielder never got a chance. He’s great on the ball and creative with his style of play. Not only will he go for goal but he will create chances for others too.


With everything going on at Bolton, a lot of the senior players have been striking and a lot of the youngsters have had to step up. This has put Otzumer in a tricky place as he wanted the Wanderers to solve their issues so that he could stay and play football with them.

However, it’s finally time he thought of himself and moved on. This will now see him getting to actually play football, try and show the management that he’s determined and motivated. He’s back playing in the Championship so he will want to prove that he’s worth taking a chance on, now that he’s with a club that isn’t worrying about money.
