Championship Charlton Athletic have completed the loan signing of Tottenham striker Jonathan Obika.

The 22-year-old, who has also signed a new one-year deal with Spurs, joins the Addicks on a deal until the end of the season.

"After losing Bradley Wright-Phillips I just felt we were short in the striker department," boss Chris Powell said.

Powell says he has been monitoring the youngster, who has made two appearances for Spurs in cup competitions this season.

"Jonathan is a player we have kept an eye on this season in a number of games," Powell told the club website.

"I saw him when he played against us [for Yeovil last season] 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 and hopefully he will come into the group and make an impact."
