Charlton Athletic have completed the signing of Chuks Aneke on a permanent deal from Birmingham City.
Welcome back, Chuks! 🙌

The striker was with the Addicks last season, impressing as he scored 15 goals in League One. However, with his contract expiring, the 28-year-old decided to link up with Lee Bowyer again after he moved to Blues.
Things didn’t really go to plan for Aneke in the Championship though, as he managed to net just twice in 18 league fixtures, although it should be said that many of his appearances came from the bench.
Therefore, Johnnie Jackson has moved to bring the player back to The Valley, with his return announced by the Londoners yesterday.
Have Charlton Athletic won or lost more against each of these 25 English teams?
Given Charlton’s need for a proven striker, it’s fair to say that the majority of fans were delighted to see Aneke come back to the club, even if some weren’t too pleased at the club paying for a player they lost on a free six months ago.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
I mean call me negative but signing a striker that opted to sign elsewhere at the end of his contract back for 300k on a 3 and a half year contract reeks of desperation. Have we forgotten his injury record as well or ? 🤔 #cafc https://t.co/u4VlC7QVmq

3 and a half years is a hefty deal! Let’s hope he does remain fit 😱

Yes Chucks. Welcome back. Great option off the bench to back up Stockley and Washington along with Mason B.
