Charlton have completed the signing of striker Pawel Abbott from League One rivals Oldham Athletic.

The two clubs agreed a nominal fee for the 28-year-old forward, which is believed to be about £20,000.

Abbott, Charlton's sixth signing of the summer, arrived at Oldham last year and finished as the club's top scorer for the campaign with 13 goals.

"I'm happy to be on board. It's a massive club and I'm really happy to be here," he told Charlton's website.

"As soon as I found out Charlton were interested, I wanted to get it done and go there.

"I don't think there are many people who can actually say 'I don't want to go to Charlton.'

"Outside the Premier League and including the Championship, I don't think there are many better clubs where people would want to ply their trade. I'm looking forward to showing the fans what I can do."

Abbott made his debut for Preston as a teenager before spells with Huddersfield, Swansea and Darlington.
