‘Excited for this one!’ – Many Charlton Athletic fans react to Chelsea transfer agreement

Published

on

Juan Castillo completed his loan move from Chelsea to Charlton Athletic for the rest of the season this morning.

The 22-year-old only managed one start in the Championship for Birmingham City in the first half of the campaign and was a more regular fixture in the club’s U23 side.

The Dutchman becomes the Addicks’ second January addition after Chuks Aneke returned to the club on a permanent transfer from Birmingham last week.

Ben Purrington and Pape Souare stand in Castillo’s way for a spot at left back or left wing back.

However, the chances are that the latter will fall below Castillo in the pecking order having struggled to impress Johnnie Jackson in the last few months.

Jay DaSilva and Ian Maatsen both enjoyed successful loan spells in SE7 from Chelsea in the last few years and Castillo will be looking to emulate their impact, with the pair kicking on at Championship clubs following their loan spells in South London.

In the short term the Addicks will be looking to pull away from the relegation zone and back towards the top half in League One, it will be interesting to see to what extent Castillo is involved in Saturday’s hosting of Fleetwood Town.
