Charlton want Collins
Dumbarton defender Neill Collins
Neill Collins has been watched by several top clubs
Defender Neill Collins is to return to Charlton Athletic for a second trial spell - but only after Dumbarton are safe from relegation.

The Sons are one point ahead of second bottom Stranraer in Scotland's Division Two.

And manager Brian Fairley said: "Charlton wanted to see Neill playing in a game.

"But the player and ourselves have agreed that it is better for him to stay with us until the end of the season."

The 19-year-old Collins was with the English Premiership club for three days at the beginning of April.

He returned to help Dumbarton to a 2-2 draw away to Hamilton Academical on Saturday.
