Stars Abroad

Championship newcomers Charlton Athletic have rewarded Nigeria international goalkeeper Joseph Osaghae with a new deal.

The Addicks confirmed on their website that Osaghae and four other players have signed their first professional contracts.

During the 2018/19 season, he played for Charlton Athletic in the FA Youth Cup, U18 Professional Development League and was named on the bench on several occasions for the U23 team. 

Having made the matchday squad for the first team when they faced Swansea City U23s in the EFL Trophy in November 2018, the 18-year-old is a player with great potential. 

The Lambeth Tigers graduate was a second-half substitute as Charlton thrashed Pro Direct Academy 5-0 in a friendly in April. 

Joseph Osaghae was a member of the Charlton side that won the Professional Development League 2 title in May 2018.
