Charlton striker Josh Umerah has returned early from his loan spell with Wycombe.

Umerah, who made his league debut against Hull last year, has been sidelined with an ankle injury since October.

The Addicks academy graduate’s loan deal officially ends on January 15, but he is now continuing his rehabilitation at Charlton’s training base in Eltham.

Umerah, 20, scored twice in seven appearances for League Two side Wycombe.

Charlton boss Karl Robinson was impressed with the striker’s fast start.

Speaking back in October, he told News Shopper: “Our head of welfare went down with [head of recruitment] Steve Gallen and spent a day with him.

“He did a progress report and Josh was happy, [Wycombe manager] Gareth Ainsworth was happy.

“We’re really pleased with Josh.”

Umerah has featured heavily for Charlton’s development squad and has three senior appearances to his name.
