Llera joins club from Franchise
The first bit of worthwhile activity down at Charlton since, ooh about 2007. The first official transfer business of the season as today "Charlton manager"
Phil Parkinson completed the free transfer of Miguel Ángel Llera
from Franchise United.
Llera only had a one-year deal at Franchise after signing from Spanish 2nd Div club Hércules CF last September and new negotiations for an extension failed. Llera's career has been patchy apart from one promotion season at Gimnàstic, but by all accounts he had a good season in Milton Keynes. I have read that he is naturally left-footed with good distribution, but being so tall he can get turned quickly by nippier forwards. He finished the season strongly even scoring the 5th penalty in Franchise's play-off semi shootout against Scunthorpe.
Llera will almost certainly replace captain Mark Hudson, who is expected to move to Cardiff
tomorrow or Wednesday for £500,000. Trouble is with Fortune's future undecided, Llera is currently the only centre half now on the books.
