Charlton Athletic have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci

Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci has joined Charlton Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has joined Charlton in time to be eligible for their weekend game against Derby County in the Championship.

Petrucci was not getting any game time with the Under-21s so a loan move was right for him but it is the latest indictment that his future will not be with Manchester United.

Having had a rather unsuccessful loan spell with Royal Antwerp earlier this season, Petrucci was re-called to the Under-21s side but went on to hardly feature at all in Warren Joyce’s side.

Injuries have marred his progress up until this point and although it is another temporary deal, Petrucci will more than likely to be glad to simply play some football.
