Yaya Sanogo: On the move to Charlton

Arsenal striker Yaya Sanogo has sealed his loan move to Championship strugglers Charlton until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old found his chances increasingly limited at the Emirates and had spent time on loan in Holland with Ajax.

But the Addicks were keen to land another striker to help their increasingly desperate bid to clamber out of the relegation zone.

Charlton have a close link with Arsenal and loaned Francis Coquelin from the club before his emergence as a first-team regular at the Emirates.

Fanni signing

Charlton have also signed Rod Fanni, with the former France defender becoming their fifth signing of the window.

The 34-year-old arrives from Qatari side Al-Arabi, whom he had joined from Ligue 1 Marseille.

Imposing full-back Fanni won five caps for his country between 2008 and 2013 and will link up with compatriot Alou Diarra at The Valley.

The Addicks – currently second from bottom of the Championship – had already sealed deals for Roger Johnson, Diego Poyet and Jorge Teixeira.

Meanwhile, Charlton have cancelled the contracts of Franck Moussa and Ricardo Vaz Te by mutual consent.
