Charlton secure deal for Di Canio

Charlton have signed Paolo di Canio on a one-year contract. The Italian was a free agent after being released by West Ham at the end of the season.

There had been speculation in many quarters that the Italian would return to his native land this summer but it would now seem that the player was not too keen to leave London.

The much-travelled 35-year-old passed a medical this afternoon.
