Arsenal decided to send Arsenal striker Stephy Mavididi on loan spell for the remainder of the season to Charlton.
Arsenal officially announced the deal for the Arsenal U21 striker on their official website.
Mavididi is yet to make his first-team debut, but he has been a star for their U-21 side. He was the top scorer for them last season with 17 goals in 30 matches. The 18-year-old has also scored 6 goals in 7 matches this season.
Charlton manager Karl Robinson seemed delighted to have signed the Arsenal youth star.
He’s certainly got the key components to succeed in what I call ‘real’ football. He has the power, the game intelligence and this move is one that he has to grab with both hands.
Mavididi also spoke about his excitement after completing the move.
I’m really excited. This is my first loan, it’s a big opportunity for me and a stepping stone in my career. It’s something I want to do and I’m looking forward to the experience. I was at the Millwall game a couple of weeks ago. The Valley is such a big stadium and what captured me the most was the fans and the atmosphere. It made me want to run out in front of them and play. I can’t wait to get started
