New signing Michał Żyro's Charlton squad number confirmed

Michał Żyro will wear the number 27 shirt during his time at Charlton. 

The Poland international joined the club on loan until the end of the season from Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday and Head of Recruitment Steve Gallen believes the striker will be an extremely useful signing for the club.

"He is a quality football player with a good background," he said. "He can play in a number of positions, he can play right wing, left wing, as a number nine and I think that's what we are thinking about in the short term; playing him as a number nine. 

"He's big, strong, hard-working, honest and has a proven track record of scoring goals."

Manager Karl Robinson also underlined the importance of the Addicks getting the deal over the line. 

"He's tall, athletic, rangy in his movement and he's a bit different to what we've got."

"He is very functional in his movement, he can play off the right if we need a big strong boy out there, he can play up top in a one and he can play up top in a two with Josh [Magennis] if we need him to. He gives us a bit more versatility."
