Yet more transfer madness on this most excitingly epic of transfer deadline days – the big news is that Yaya Sanogo has joined Charlton Athletic on loan.
It’s the second loan spell of the season for the 23 year old after a rather unsuccessful move to Ajax was cut short by agreement between the two clubs. He made just 4 appearances for Frank de Boer’s side, and now has a chance to play for a team who desperately need him to be better than that.
The Addicks lie second from bottom of the Championship, and are ensconced in a relegation battle. Sanogo has yet to score a league goal in English football, so they’re looking to him as a fairly unlikely saviour, but good luck to him there all the same.
The Frenchman has an FA Cup winner’s medal from 2014 when his introduction in the final against Hull confused the shite out of them, and for that we’ll always be grateful.
He follows in the footsteps of previous loaness Alex Song and Francis Coquelin who returned from The Valley like new men.
Hopefully Sanogo can return as former Brazilian legend Romario. Thanks Charlton!
