Parkinson says Charlton board trying to raise funds

Charlton manager Phil Parkinson
Parkinson says he expects to know soon what transfer funds are available

Charlton manager Phil Parkinson has praised the club's board of directors for trying to raise transfer funds.

Parkinson hopes to bolster his promotion-chasing squad with new signings before the closure of the January transfer window.

He told BBC Radio Kent: "The board are working exceptionally hard to give the club every chance of getting promoted.

"At the moment I'm not sure how much room for manoeuvre there is. But I expect it to become clearer soon."

Parkinson confirmed that striker Izale McLeod's loan to Peterborough had allowed him to re-sign Reading's David Mooney on loan.

He added: "Apart from Yassin Moutaouakil going out and Dean Sinclair returning to Barnet, I don't envisage anyone else going.

"So anyone else coming in would be additional to what we've got."
