Stephy Mavididi’s loan spell at Preston North End is being cut short.
The 19-year-old striker joined North End on loan at Arsenal in August but has been limited to four starts and seven substitute appearances.
He was not in the matchday squad for PNE’s 3-2 defeat against Middlesbrough on New Year’s Day and reports in London say he is set to join Charlton Athletic on loan for the remainder of the season.
The England u20 international went out on loan to Charlton at the end of January 2017 and made five League One appearances while there. However, in February, he suffered a serious hamstring injury, which required surgery and kept him sidelined for 89 days.
The Addicks were interested in taking him on loan in the summer but North End beat them to his signature.
In the main, Mavididi was used out wide by Alex Neil, although he did start him up front against Bolton and Bristol City in November.
