Alan Pardew's second signing of the 06/07 pre-season was youngster Jonathan Spector, a versatile defender who can play anywhere across the back line.
Spector - who signed pro terms with Manchester United in 2004 - made just two league starts for the Reds before joining Charlton on loan for the 05/06 season, for whom he made 24 appearances.
Prior to his arrival in East London the American made two international appearances, his last being in the 1-1 draw with Scotland in November 2005.
