A report claims that former West Ham United goalkeeper Stephen Henderson is nearing a move to Charlton Athletic.

Stephen Henderson is reportedly on the verge of signing for Championship side Charlton Athletic.

The 26-year-old was made available for a free transfer earlier this weekend following his release by West Ham United.

News of his availability has alerted Charlton manager Bob Peeters, who is in the market for a new goalkeeper following Ben Hamer's departure to Leicester City, according to Sky Sports News.

Henderson made just two appearances for West Ham following his arrival at Upton Park in 2012.
