Addicks draft in Gunners midfielder
CHRIS Powell has moved into the loan market again to snap up Arsenal’s Emmanuel Frimpong until January 1.
The Addicks boss has already added Dan Seaborne and Eggert Jonsson to his squad on temporary deals this month and this morning 20-year-old central midfielder Frimpong became the latest loanee to arrive at The Valley.
Powell told the club’s official website: “We’re really happy that he’s coming in to join our squad, and we welcome him to the club.
“We’ve had our eye on him for a while and with the busy Christmas period to come, I felt it was right to make sure that we are covered in all areas.
“We hope that he does very well for us in the red or black of Charlton.”
Charlton are currently enjoying their most profitable spell since returning to the Championship having won their past three league games, results which have seen them climb up to 14th in the table and only five points off the play-offs.
The latest victory came on Saturday thanks to Danny Haynes’ second half winner in a 1-0 triumph at Burrnley.
Powell said: “It’s fantastic for us.
“Everyone knows that our away form has been the bedrock of our season so far and again we showed our character and our mental attitude to the game today.
“It was a tough game, with a lot of questions asked of us and a lot of contentious issues including a missed penalty, a sending-off and a lot of things going on.
“We didn’t express ourselves maybe in the way we wanted, but it was a moment of quality for the goal.
“Danny Haynes has three in three now and has really made an impact for us.
“And it was another clean sheet, too.
“Things are looking up.
“But I know how difficult it can be in this league and I keep reminding the players that that’s what happens in this league.
“When things aren’t happening for you, you have to work hard to turn things around, and we are certainly doing this at the moment.”
