Charlton Athletic add a third player from Standard Liege this month, bringing in teenager Anil Koc on a six-month loan deal.

Charlton Athletic have signed another player from Standard Liege, adding teenage wideman Anil Koc on a six-month loan deal from the Belgian club.

Since Liege owner Roland Duchatelet's takeover at the start of the month, three players have been brought in from the Belgian outfit.

At just 18, Turkish-Belgian Koc is viewed as a back-up for the first team who will mainly learn the English game with the Under-21 development squad, Addicks manager Chris Powell told the club's official website.

"He's a wide player so we'll see how that develops for him. It's a different environment, he's already trained and he'll be involved with Jason Euell's squad and we'll see him with us as well," said Powell.

Koç joins Astrit Ajdarevic and Yohann Thuram-Ulien in switching to the The Valley from Belgium this month.
