DONE DEAL | Akin Famewo returns to the Addicks

Charlton Athletic are delighted to confirm the signing of Akin Famewo on a season-long loan from Norwich City.

The defender impressed fans and staff alike during a loan spell with the Addicks last season, making 22 appearances for Charlton.

As part of the deal the Addicks have the option to purchase Famewo permanently.

The 22-year-old explained he couldn’t wait to be back at The Valley. He said: “I’m very pleased, I’m excited to get going. Just being back in the building you can tell there is a good energy, everyone is ready for the fresh start and to get going again."

Famewo becomes the latest signing following the additions of Jayden Stockley, Craig Macgillivray and George Dobson. Manager, Nigel Adkins, said : “I am very pleased we’ve been able to bring Akin back to the club. He is an outstanding, young defender who showed us all just how good he is when he was with us last season.” 

The announcement is the second of the day following the news that Adam Matthews has re-signed with the club. Owner Thomas Sandgaard met both players at the training ground on Wednesday. He said: “I’m really pleased we’ve been able to welcome Akin back to Charlton as we continue to build our squad for next season. I was very impressed watching him last season and I know he also impressed Nigel and our fans, so it is exciting we’ve been able to bring him in.”
