Charlton announced on Wednesday afternoon that exciting Arsenal youngster Stephy Mavididi had re-joined the club on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old returns to The Valley for his second spell, having spent two months in SE7 at the start of 2017 and the first half of this season at Championship side Preston North End.

We’ve taken a look at Mavididi’s career so far, which has seen him star for the Gunners’ academy teams and make multiple appearances for England at youth level.


Since signing his first professional contract with the club in 2015, Mavididi has hit eight goals in 17 appearances for his parent club at youth level.

The majority of those appearances came last season before the highly-regarded front-man joined the Addicks in January.


Mavididi has represented England at Under 17, Under 19 and Under 20 level since 2015, scoring six goals for his country in this time. 

As well as his eye for goal, he has a natural ability to beat defenders with his pace, power and trickery.


In action for Charlton last season, Mavididi almost scored an incredible goal in the Addicks’ 3-3 draw at Rochdale. 

Beginning in his own half, he dribbled beyond five Rochdale defenders only to be deprived of his first senior goal by Dale’s goalkeeper.


Mavididi featured for Preston North End this season where he made 11 appearances, including three Championship starts. 

His debut came in Preston’s defeat to Acrrington Stanley in the Carabao Cup. The versatile Englishman can be deployed either at centre-forward, behind the striker or on the wing.


Mavididi joins Charlton for his second loan stint at the club. The youngster caught the eye during his spell at The Valley last season and may feel that he has unfinished business in SE7, having had his first loan cut short due to a hamstring injury.
