This alerted the attention of Charlton Athletic and signed in 2007 and spent three seasons at the Valley making 28 league appearances and scored one FA Cup goal spending loan spells at Crewe, Bristol Rovers and Gillingham. He then spent a successful spell in Cypriot football particularly with AEL Limassol and played in Champions League and Europa League football whilst there and also in Chinese league football.
