Charlton have signed former Stoke and Southampton striker Ricardo Fuller on a free transfer.

The 32-year-old, who was released by Stoke last month, has agreed a one-year deal at The Valley with the option of a further 12 months.

Fuller was introduced to Charlton's fans at half-time of their npower Championship clash with Leicester on Tuesday night.

The Jamaican is no stranger to south-east London, having played three games for the Addicks' reserves before signing for neighbours Crystal Palace in 2001.

Fuller, Charlton's fifth summer signing, has also played for Hearts, Preston, Portsmouth and Ipswich.
