Charlton face an agonising wait before they know whether they have gained automatic entry into the UEFA Cup through the Fair Play League.

The south-east London club are the highest-placed team in the Premier League's Fair Play table not to have qualified for Europe, so will be England's representatives.

The national association which tops UEFA's Fair Play League automatically earns an extra place in the qualifying round of the 2004-05 UEFA Cup with two others standing to gain places via a draw of those with a coefficient of eight or more.

Up to the last week in April, Sweden topped the ranking with an average of 8.296 points followed by Denmark with 8.277.

Third were England (8.222) with Norway (8.194) fourth and Finland (8.123) completing the Scandinavian challenge.

But with only 0.074 separating the top three and a month to go England could yet make it to first place which would see Charlton handed an automatic place.

Charlton chief executive Peter Varney is hopeful that manager Alan Curbishley will resist the lure of Liverpool to stay at The Valley.

Curbishley is thought to be one of the names in the frame to replace Gerard Houllier after the Frenchman parted company with the Anfield club on Monday.

Curbishley has established a fine reputation in his 13 years as manager at Charlton and may now fancy the challenge of a bigger club.


Meanwhile Charlton have swooped to make their first signing of the summer by capturing Denmark international goalkeeper Stephan Andersen from AB Copenhagen.

The 22-year-old has joined the Addicks for eight million kroner - the equivalent of 721,000.

Charlton defender Richard Rufus has been forced to retire from the game because of a serious knee injury.

The 29-year-old underwent a major operation in the United States earlier this year but it has not proved successful.

Rufus broke through from the Addicks' youth set-up and into the first team in November 1994 at the age of 19, and went on to make 323 appearances for the club, scoring 13 times.

He earned the supporters' club player of the year award three times.

When will they find out if they have got into the Uefa Cup through fair play? That could really give Curbishly the money he needs to bolster his squad, they seemed to struggle once Scott Parker left. I guess we'll see...

Alan Curbishley has played down talk of former Arsenal striker Kanu joining Charlton.

The Nigerian has been released by the Premiership champions and there had been suggestions he could make the short trip across the capital to join the Addicks.

However, Curbishley claims he is not interested - although he has revealed he has signed two new players whose identities will not be revealed until they officially move to The Valley on July 1.

Charlton boss Alan Curbishley is still in the dark over Carlton Cole's future at The Valley.

Curbishley's return from his summer holiday was greeted by reports suggesting the England under-21 striker wanted to cut short his loan spell with the Addicks and return to Chelsea.

Cole has a year left to run on the extended loan deal agreed as part of Scott Parker's transfer to Stamford Bridge but Curbishley admits the player's desire to move could end his Charlton career.

PSV Eindhoven claim they have reached an agreement with Charlton for the transfer of Danish striker Dennis Rommedahl.

The Addicks had earlier played down reports that the 25-year-old had signed for the Premiership club.

A report on the Dutch outfit's official website said: "An agreement with Charlton Athletic concerning a possible transfer of Dennis Rommedahl has been reached. Rommedahl must reach an agreement with the club."

Charlton Athletic are understood to have made a renewed bid for Sheffield United's England Under-21 star Phil Jagielka.
A number of clubs, including Aston Villa, are looking to land Jagielka and it is believed that Blades boss Neil Warnock is bracing himself to lose his skipper - with Charlton favourites to land him.

The 21-year-old Manchester-born star only agreed a new long-term deal in January - but United will be hard-pressed to keep hold of him.

Jagielka - who can play in defence or midfield - is seen as one of the best young talents outside The Premiership.

Rommedahl made 191 appearances for PSV, winning four Dutch league titles but was eager to test himself in the Premiership.

Lambeth-born Euell, top-scorer last season for the Addicks, will turn out for the Caribbean side, for whom he qualifies through his father, despite having played for England Under-21s.

After delaying a decision until the end of Charlton's Premiership campaign, Euell agreed to represent Jamaica after travelling to the Caribbean to watch the World Cup qualifier against Haiti.

With the signings they've made so far I don't think they've found anyone to replace Scott Parker. They've brought in workers, not creative midfielders. Without that they could struggle.
