Charlton have signed Crystal Palace winger Sullay Kaikai on loan until the end of the season.

Kaikai, 22, is a proven performer in League One after scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances for Shrewsbury.

He is Karl Robinson’s third loan signing of the January transfer window following the captures of Stephy Mavididi and Michal Zyro.

The Valley boss said: “It was an important one for us. He’s an exceptionally talented individual. We thank everyone who has helped in the process in trying to make this happen.

“We knew there were Championship teams that were interested in him. He’s an exciting player, we know we’ve got a player that can certainly score goals.

“He can play off the left, he can play as the nine, he can play behind the striker. He’s quick and he excites you, he adds to the type of players that we already have at the football club.”

Kaikai, who will wear the number 11 shirt, added: “I’m delighted. It’s been going on for about a week now. I’m just delighted it’s over the line and looking forward to playing and showing the fans what I can do.

“The manager played a big role in it, the club as well, where they are in the table, their ambition, for me it was a no brainer.”

Charlton head of recruitment Steve Gallen said: “We actually tried to get him in the summer. We’ve tracked him all the way through since, watching U23 games.

“At times he’s played as a midfielder, at times he’s played as a 10, he’s played as an 11, he’s played as a nine.

“He’s scored goals in a couple of games. He’s scored a couple of hat-tricks. We know exactly what we’re getting and we’re really, really pleased to get him.”
