Leon McKenzie has completed his anticipated switch from Coventry to Charlton, penning a one-year deal with the League One leaders.
The forward, 31, recently returned to action after a lengthy spell on the sidelines nursing a ruptured Achilles and, having come to the end of one-month deal at the Ricoh Arena in which he proved his fitness, was offered terms until the end of the year - an offer he rejected in favour of a deal at The Valley running until the end of this season.
"I have worked really hard to get back to the levels I am at. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a good pro and I feel the club should have done better for me," he told the Coventry Telegraph.
"The manager wanted me to stay until the end of the season and all the players have said it doesn't make sense. I even agreed to halve my wages so it was not about money. I just wanted a contract until the end of the season. What's the problem? So it was out of my hands and I am moving back home."
Coventry are believed to have paid McKenzie over the summer when he was out of contract, and chairman Ray Ranson said: "It is disappointing because our medical team have worked really hard over the summer to get Leon back to full fitness and now he has chosen to go to Charlton."
Charlton have also signed winger Luke Holden on loan from Welsh side Rhyl on loan until December with a view to a permanent move.
