Arsenal send Yaya Sanogo on loan to Charlton

Arsenal forward Yaya Sanogo has been recalled from his loan at Ajax and sent to Championship side Charlton for the rest of the season instead.

The 23-year-old Sanogo has made just four appearances for Ajax this season and will be looking for more playing time at Charlton, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger still hoping the Frenchman can develop into a formidable striker.

Sanogo was signed on a free transfer from French second-division club Auxerre in 2013 as a raw talent with plenty of potential. But he has struggled to fulfil that potential so far, scoring just one goal in 20 Arsenal appearances and joining Crystal Palace on loan last season.

Charlton hailed Sanogo's experience playing in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup final in welcoming the striker to the club.

A statement on Arsenal's website said: "Everyone at Arsenal wishes Yaya well for his time at The Valley."

Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy was also sent out on loan to Bordeaux in a deadline day deal.

Also on Monday, Charlton also added former France international Rod Fanni on loan from Qatari side Al-Arabi.
