Jonathan Obika will spend the rest of the season at Charlton Athletic after joining the side on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur's Jonathan Obika has joined Charlton Athletic on loan for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old, who has just signed a new contract with Spurs keeping him at the club until 2014, will help bolster the Addicks up front.

Charlton manager Chris Powell told the club's website: "After losing Bradley Wright-Phillips I just felt we were short in the striker department.

"Jonathan is a player we have kept an eye on this season in a number of games. I saw him when he played against us and he has an eye for a goal.

"He is a player full of potential and it is a chance for us to have a good look at him. Hopefully he will come into the group and make an impact."

The striker has had loan spells at Crystal Palace and Yeovil Town.
