Loan deal: Charlton Athletic sign Chelsea left-back

Championship side Charlton Athletic have completed the signing of Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen on a season-long loan. 

Maatsen follows in the footsteps of Jay Dasilva and Conor Gallagher, who both had a very successful spell with Charlton in recent seasons. 

Speaking the club's website,  Charlton coach Lee Bowyer said, "He’s a very exciting left-back. He’s ambitious [with the ball], very good in possession, he has great energy, great pace. I would say he is quite similar to Jay Dasilva, the way he travels with the ball and goes past people. He’s exciting and different to what we have."
