THE ADDICKS have confirmed the loan signing of Chelsea wing-back Juan Castillo.

The 22-year-old has signed a deal with Charlton until the end of the season and becomes the second new arrival of the window following Chuks Aneke's return to the club.

The defender has admitted he is excited to play in front of the club's fans.

He said: "I'm really excited and looking forward to working with everyone and playing at The Valley in front of the fans. 

"Once I heard that Charlton were interested, I looked at games on YouTube and the first thing that stood out was the fans and the atmosphere.

"I'm a creative player, I like to get up and down the left side and I bring energy. I hope that I can develop here and have a successful time. I can't wait to get started and show what I can do."

Addicks boss Johnnie Jackson has previously helped in the success and development of other Chelsea loannes such as Jay Dasilva, Conor Gallagher and Ian Maatsen.

He said: “I like the fact that he is young and hungry.

“He will want to come here and really make his mark, having that youthful enthusiasm and energy is definitely something we need.

“Chelsea speak highly of him and we are really pleased to have him.”
