JOJO Wollacott has turned down the offer of a new contract at Swindon Town to sign for Ben Garner's Charlton Athletic.

Wollacott is the second former Town player to make the switch after Charlton head coach Ben Garner persuaded full-back Mandela Egbo to sign for the Addicks earlier this week.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper has signed a three-year deal at The Valley and will officially join Charlton once his Town contract expires at the end of June.

The Ghana international played 39 times last season and conceded 46 goals while keeping 11 clean sheets on his way to earning a spot in the EFL League Two Team of the Season.

Wollacott was Town's number one until a shoulder injury forced him to sit out the last four regular-season games and both play-off semi-final fixtures. His final game for Swindon was a 2-1 home defeat against Leyton Orient.

The apparent shoulder issue came weeks after Wollacott helped Ghana qualify for the Qatar World Cup at the end of this year.

Speaking to The South London Press after signing, Wollacott said: “I’m delighted. It’s the sort of club that you always want to be at.

"You always have the ambition to play for such a high-profile club. Obviously walking around the stadium you can feel the magnitude of the club. I’m really happy to be here.

“Ben (Garner) being here made it an easy decision. We had a really good season last year.

"Obviously I know how he wants to play and I know how he wants his goalkeeper to play. I feel like, for the next step in my career, he can really develop my game.”

After learning of Wollacott's intentions, Town moved quickly to bring in a replacement and signed Middlesbrough goalkeeper Sol Brynn on a season-long loan on Thursday.
