Charlton have completed the double signing of Djimi Traore and Amdy Faye.
Charlton Athletic have completed the double signing of Djimi Traore and Amdy Faye.
As revealed by skysports.com last month, Charlton were keen on signing Liverpool defender Traore and Newcastle United midfielder Faye.
Both players travelled to London for talks and medicals on Monday after Charlton agreed fees with Liverpool and Newcastle last week.
The duo successfully passed their medicals and agreed terms with Charlton and have now penned three-year deals at The Valley.
Liverpool decided to let Traore leave after seven years at Anfield, as they look to raise funds.
Faye spent eighteen months at Newcastle after signing from Portsmouth, but failed to hold down a regular place in the side.
The double signing brings Iain Dowie's amount of new additions to four following the arrivals of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Simon Walton.
Dowie was delighted to land the duo and is hoping to push through a few deals before the start of the new season.
"We're delighted to have made two quality signings, and they will both improve our first-team squad," Dowie told the club's official website.
"We're also working very hard on several other signings and we hope to be able to make further announcements soon."
