Charlton Athletic attacker completes transfer to League One side
Charlton Athletic have confirmed on their club website today (Monday, 1st July) that attacker Tariqe Fosu has completed a permanent move to League One side Oxford United.
Tariqe Fosu has completed a move to League One side Oxford United for an undisclosed fee, leaving Charlton Athletic to link up with former Addicks boss Karl Robinson.
Fosu has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the League One club, bringing an end to his two-year stint at The Valley.
Fosu has been at Charlton Athletic for two years since joining from Championship side Reading. In his time at The Valley, the attacker has played 65 times, scoring 11 goals and providing 10 assists along the way. But now, with his time at the club coming to an end, he will be looking forward to preparing for the new season in new surroundings, but under the familiar face of Karl Robinson.
Speaking to the Oxford United club website upon the announcement, Fosu said that he is looking forward to working under Robinson once again.
“I’ve played against Oxford a few times now and always thought they were a good team who played attacking football. I enjoyed working with Karl and I know the Chairman from his time at Reading so those two were big factors in coming here. But the biggest thing was to join a good club who have big ambitions and I know I have found that here.”
Robinson is also looking forward to working with the Charlton man again, giving U’s fans a taste of what is to come from Fosu.
“He’s a really talented player. He has so much skill, can be direct and he knows the league. Last summer we had a major rebuilding to do and it took time but this season we already have the core of a good squad here and adding players like Tariqe continues to strengthen us.”
