Confirmation has now officially come, from his French club; that Eric Tie Bi is on trial with Charlton.
The midfielder, as I'm sure you've already read online, turned out in a game for the Addicks this week. By all accounts its questionable what he'd actually offer the club as he's quite possibly not got anything that isn't already available at the Valley...
Hull had looked at the 23-year-old Ivorian earlier this summer, so clearly he's got something about him mind, but does he have enough to earn a contract with Charlton and do they even need the midfielder?
Tie Bi is currently contracted to French Ligue 1 outfit Evian.
