Charlton sign offensive full back from QPR

Yun Suk-Young, out of favour at Queens Park Rangers, has today joined Championship and London rivals Charlton Athletic on loan. The 10-cap South Korean international moves to The Valley on a deal which runs until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old becomes the second signing in as many days by the Addicks as another defender, and another full back in the form of Marco Motta joined the club late last week.

Yun moved to Loftus Road in January 2013 but failed to make a single appearance for the R’s in the reaminder of that season. He featured more in the Championship the following season and briefly in the Premier League when they won promotion into the top flight. In addition to a loan spell at Doncaster Rovers, Yun has mostly struggled to earn a regular run in the team. The change of managers at QPR hasn’t seen him fall back in favour.

Nevertheless, Riga is delighted to add Young to his squad and feels he will have a big part to play in their quest for survival,

“Yun is a player that will bring us some of the experience that we need in our situation. He knows the Championship and has a good knowledge of English football.

“He is a versatile player that can get forward well and has also played a number of high-pressure games in his career.”

Belgian Riga, in his second spell as manager with the club, also commented on the acquisition of Motta, who was a transfer target for QPR earlier this season,
“Marco is another player that has good experience of England and has also played for big club’s like Juventus. He gives us some more options and is someone that can play at right-back and also in a back three.

“We have a run of three matches in a week coming soon and both Yun and Marco will reinforce our squad and be and big help to us. They are both very dedicated players and I am very happy to add them to my squad.”

Young becomes the fifth loan player to be added to the Charlton squad. Which is the maximum amount allowed in any one matchday squad. Simon Makienok joined from Palermo last summer, whilst Diego Poyet re-joined the club in January from West Ham United. Yaya Sanogo and Rod Fanni also signed on temporary deals on transfer deadline day from Arsenal and Al-Arabi SC respectively.
