Rarmani Edmonds-Green is an Addick


Charlton Athletic are delighted to announce the signing of versatile defender Rarmani Edmonds-Green from Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Addicks, with a club option of an extra year.

Edmonds-Green, who played a key role in Rotherham United’s promotion to the Championship in 2021/22, has featured 16 times for Huddersfield this season and has been part of every matchday squad.

He becomes the Addicks’ fifth signing of a busy January transfer window following the arrivals of Tyreeq Bakinson, Lewis Fiorini, Conor Coventry and Macaulay Gillesphey.

After sealing his switch to SE7, Edmonds-Green said: “I'm obviously a south London boy so I'm buzzing to be here and be back home. As soon as I heard about the interest, I just wanted to get down here and get going. I spoke to Michael Appleton and I like his ideas and his style of play.”

Head Coach Michael Appleton commented: “Rarmani has got good experience in the Championship and League One. He’s got lots of quality on the ball, he’s very athletic and he’s quick. He gives us options across that backline, not just in the centre-half positions but across the wing-back positions as well. The fans will see his physical attributes and what he’s capable of very, very quickly.”

Technical Director Andy Scott added: “Rarmani’s another player who has got a promotion out of this league, is Championship quality and has been playing in the Championship recently. He’s got experience, he’s versatile and he gives us mobility and pace that means we can be more aggressive with our backline.

"He’s a really good communicator who talks well on the pitch and seems to be a really good leader. He’s someone who is going to give us more balance in the side and we’re delighted to add his experience to the group.”

Born in Peckham, Edmonds-Green began his career at the Nike Academy before joining Huddersfield on his 17th birthday in January 2016.

He was named captain of Huddersfield’s U18s side in his first full season in west Yorkshire, before moving up to the U23s in early 2017. Edmonds-Green immediately became an ever-present starter for Town’s Development Squad.

In April 2018, he was named Defender of the Tournament after leading the young Terriers to a fourth-place finish in the U19 Champions Trophy in Düsseldorf.

Having gained his first taste of senior football at Brighouse Town, who he helped win the Northern Premier League Division One East play-offs, the defender made his professional debut in Huddersfield’s EFL Cup tie against Lincoln City in August 2019.

After impressing on loan with National League side Bromley, Edmonds-Green was recalled by the Terriers and made his league debut in a 1-0 victory at The Valley in December 2019.

He subsequently joined Swindon Town on loan for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign, culminating in the Robins being crowned League Two champions.

That form saw the Terriers reward Edmonds-Green with 24 Championship appearances during the following season.

He was loaned to Rotherham United for the 2021/22 campaign and became an immediate hit with supporters, featuring 38 times, scoring three goals and registering assists as the Millers won automatic promotion to the Championship and lifted the EFL Trophy.

Edmonds-Green spent the first half of the 2022/23 season on loan at then-Championship outfit Wigan Athletic, before returning to Huddersfield where he went on to make eight appearances under Neil Warnock who helped the Terriers retain their Championship status.

The defender earned 16 appearances for Huddersfield in the first half of the 2023/24 campaign.

The transfer is subject to EFL approval.
