Spurs land Konchesky

Spurs have signed Charlton Athletic defender Paul Konchesky on a one-month loan - with defender Chris Perry signing a similar deal at The Valley.

Konchesky asked for a transfer during the close season, but was left in limbo when Charlton did not receive any firm offers.

He decided to stay at The Valley - but has remained unsettled and Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle has moved in to take him to White Hart Lane.

"With Gary Rowett and Richard Rufus injured, and Mark Fish soon to serve a suspension, I felt we needed to bring in someone of Chris' experience," Charlton boss Alan Curbishley told the club's website.

"It's no secret that Paul Konchesky's on the transfer list. Glenn wanted to take the opportunity to have a look at him so it is an amicable arrangement for everyone."

It will be a fantastic challenge
Chris Perry
Konchesky made his England debut in the friendly defeat against Australia at Upton Park last season, but was unhappy at not getting regular football in his favoured left back position.

Perry has struggled to hold down a regular place at Spurs since his 4m move from Wimbledon in July 1999, making just 18 league appearances last season.

"I'm really looking forward to coming to Charlton," said Perry.

"Obviously, I'm not playing at Tottenham at the moment, and I'm looking forward to playing a few games and showing what I can do.

"It's a great opportunity for me - Charlton are a good Premiership team and it will be a fantastic challenge."
