Charlton Athletic have confirmed that Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo has joined the club on loan until the end of the season, just a few minutes after Arsenal confirmed that right-back Mathieu Debuchy has left the club on a loan move to Bordeaux.
Charlton Athletic FC took it to twitter and wrote:
Sanogo, has been with Arsenal since 2013 and he was part of the squad that won the FA Cup and also played a role in both Champions League and Premier League. He also managed to score four goals against Portuguese club Benefica for Arsenal in the Emirates Cup.
Sanogo has had a torrid time since joining Ajax on loan in the summer and has not scored for either the first or second teams this term.
The 23-year-old striker spent the first half of the 2015/16 season on loan at Ajax.
As stated by Charlton Athletic website: “Sanogo began his career in the Club Omnisports des Ulis academy – the youth system that produced ex-France internationals Patrice Evra and Thierry Henry.“
“After spending one year with the Parisian club, he was signed by Ligue 1 side Auxerre. He bagged 15 goals in 31 league appearances for their B team, and was then promoted to the first team, where he netted 11 times in 21 league games.“
“That convinced Arsene Wenger to bring him to Arsenal. His Gunners debut came against Fulham at Craven Cottage and he made 13 further appearances during the 2013/14 campaign, with the final one coming in the FA Cup final.”
“Last term, he played six times for the North Londoners and spent the second half of the season on loan at Crystal Palace. Sanogo becomes the second Arsenal loanee to join Charlton in as many seasons, following the signing of Francis Coquelin in 2014/15.”
