Wolves attacker Michal Zyro is set to join Charlton Athletic with manager Karl Robinson confirming after Saturday’s win over Walsall that a new loan signing was imminent.
The Addicks boss told the press that a deal had been given the go-ahead on the day of the game. “We got the green light on one before kick-off. I’m not going to tell you who it is. I don’t want to jinx it.”
“He is 6ft 1ins or 6ft 2ins, quick and left-footed, which gives us a bit more balance. He can play as a striker, as a nine. We’ll get him to the training ground on Monday.”
And, the same report has now revealed that the man Robinson was on about is Polish forward Zyro.
The former Legia Warsaw player joined the Championship leaders back in 2016 and made a very positive start to life in England, scoring three goals in seven games.
However, he was the victim of an awful challenge from Antony Kay of MK Dons, whilst Robinson was manager, which caused multiple ligament damage and fractured his knee.
Despite returning to fitness during pre-season, Zyro hasn’t featured for Wolves in the league this season.
This is a great move for Zyro who will be desperate to go out and play football having missed nearly 18 months due to that horrific injury.
If he can recapture anything like the form he displayed when joining Wolves he will be a real steal for Charlton as he has a lot of quality.
With the way things have changed at Wolves this season, game time is not going to come at Molineux so this is a chance for Zyro to impress and show everyone what he can do.
