DONE DEAL | Melisa Filis signs on loan

Melisa Filis

Charlton Athletic are thrilled to announce the loan signing of Melisa Filis from West Ham United until the end of the season.

The creative midfielder, who progressed through the ranks at Arsenal, joined the Hammers in the summer of 2021 and has represented England at youth level.

"I'm excited to be here," said Filis. "I'm looking forward to the next six months - I've experienced a year in the Championship before which was really beneficial because they were my first real senior minutes.

"I think the Championship has come on a lot since then and, in a short space of time, there has been huge changes and the standard has really increased a lot. You can see that with Women's Super League players now floating around the league.

"I love to get on the ball, I love to create attacks from the middle of the park and help create goalscoring opportunities for the team." 

The midfielder began her career with Arsenal and, following a successful spell with London Bees, she signed her first professional contract with WSL outfit West Ham in July 2021.

Filis has also capped by England U23s, where she played alongside fellow Addicks Kiera Skeels and Mia Ross.


The deal is subject to FA approval.
