Charlton Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of Panutche Camará on a season-long loan from Ipswich Town.
The highly-rated 26-year-old, capable of operating in various positions in midfield, is established at League One level having enjoyed a successful two-year spell with Plymouth Argyle, where he featured 95 times, scored 10 goals and registered 10 assists to earn a move to Ipswich in September 2022.
Camará, who becomes the Addicks’ fourth acquisition of the summer, has represented Guinea-Bissau on four occasions, netting once.
After sealing his move to SE7, he said: “First of all I would like to thank Charlton for the opportunity to join this football club. My conversations with the Manager were very good. He showed me the project and that’s why I signed. I can’t wait to start and meet the fans.”
Manager Dean Holden is pleased to add a player of Camará’s calibre to his squad. He commented: “Pan is an excellent addition as he offers us something different in the middle of the park. He’s a good ball carrier who plays with real dynamism and is equally adept in both his defensive and attacking responsibilities.
“He’s a player I’ve admired for a long time for his selfless attitude to do what’s required for the team and his willingness to leave absolutely everything out on the pitch. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
CEO Peter Storrie added: “Panutche is our fourth signing of the summer following the additions of Harry Isted, Lloyd Jones and Alfie May and, like those players, he has shown he is a very good player at this level.
"He is a player we’ve had our eye on for a while and there was interest from elsewhere in signing him, so I’m pleased he has chosen to join us. He gives us something different in midfield, which was important as we continue to build a squad that we believe can challenge for a top-six place this season.”
The Canchungo-born midfielder began his youth career in Portugal with Loures and Vitória de Guimarães before joining Barnsley’s academy.
He moved to Dulwich Hamlet in 2017 and, after scoring four goals in 15 outings for the non-League side, earned a move to Crawley Town.
Following three seasons with the Red Devils, which saw him amass 118 appearances and net seven times, Camará signed for Plymouth.
While at Home Park, he made his international debut in an Africa Cup of Nations clash against Sudan in January 2022 and claimed his first international goal in a friendly with Equatorial Guinea two months later.
The midfielder completed a permanent switch to Ipswich for an undisclosed fee last summer and was part of the squad that earned promotion to the Championship last term.
