Charlton Athletic are delighted to announce the loan signing of striker Slobodan Tedić from Premier League champions Manchester City.
The 6ft 3in, 23-year-old joins the Addicks for the 2023/24 season amidst interest from a number of other clubs after impressing on loan at Barnsley in Sky Bet League One last term.
Tedić, who joined Man City for a significant fee in January 2020 after catching the eye in Serbia with Čukarički, becomes the Addicks’ fourth and final deadline-day signing, following the acquisitions of Tennai Watson, Louie Watson and James Abankwah.
After completing his move, he said: "I am very happy to be part of a big club with big history. I will do my best to help my team win every game and to win promotion, which is our goal. I cannot wait to meet my teammates, train with the group and play in front of all of our fans."
Technical Director Andy Scott commented: "We can say this has been a saga in getting the player to us. It's been a long drawn-out process, however we are delighted to bring in someone of his quality from such an important club to Charlton. We thank Manchester City for their help in getting this over the line.
"We hope Boban can show everybody at Charlton the quality that he has and that he can go one step further than he did with Barnsley last season in League One."
Born in Podgorica, Tedić began his career in Serbia with Vojvodina, before moving to Čukarički in 2017.
The forward was loaned back to Čukarički after joining Man City and played 38 games in the Dutch top-flight while on loan at PEC Zwolle between 2020 and 2022.
A Serbian youth international, Tedić has represented his country at U17, U19 and U21 level.
He is not eligible for Saturday's clash against Fleetwood Town having been signed after today's 12pm deadline.
