Blues Linked With Charlton Keeper Amos

Town are reportedly showing interest in Charlton Athletic keeper Ben Amos.
According to the South London Press, Amos is under consideration by the Blues, the 31-year-old having been in talks over a new deal with the Addicks with his current contract up this summer.
Macclesfield-born Amos was a schoolboy with Crewe before moving on to Manchester United’s academy.
While with the Red Devils, Amos had spells on loan at Peterborough, Norwegian side Molde, Oldham, Hull City, Carlisle and Bolton before he joined the Trotters on a permanent basis in the summer of 2015 having made seven appearances for the Old Trafford club.
Further loan spells at Cardiff, Charlton and Millwall before he joined the Addicks on a permanent basis in 2019.
Capped by England at U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels, Amos played just once for Charlton in 2019/20 but was ever-present in League One last season.
Amos was previously linked with the Blues as a potential replacement for Bartosz Bialkowski in 2018 and prior to that in 2012 during his time with Manchester United.
Town are on the lookout for two keepers this summer with Dai Cornell having already left the club by mutual consent and Tomas Holy among the players who has been told he can move on this summer.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
