Former Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro could be back in football very soon after reportedly settling her ongoing dispute with Chelsea Football Club.

The Evening Standards reports that Charlton are keen to offer Carneiro a role back in the game to work alongside firs team physio Erol Umut and club doctor John Fraser.

Last week Carneiro launched legal action over Jose Mourinho's banishing of her as Chelsea's first-team doctor.

The Premier League champions' failure to agree a severance package with Carneiro led her to pursue a claim for constructive dismissal at an employment tribunal.

It is understood that legal papers were served on the club but, according to the Evening Standard, the dispute has now been settled leaving Carneiro free to take up employment elsewhere.

Carneiro and physio Jon Fearn were banished from the bench by Mourinho for treating Eden Hazard during Chelsea's opening-day draw with Swansea on August 8.
