Young forward Zak Ansah has signed for Championship side Charlton Athletic.

The striker came through Arsenal’s Hale End academy, which he joined aged 10. Having made his debut for the club’s under-18s at just 14, Ansah went on to feature regularly for the under-21s.

He was included in Arsène Wenger's squad for the Champions League clash with Olympiacos in December 2012.

In joining the Addicks, Ansah returns to the club where he began his career as a schoolboy.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Zak for his contribution to the club and to wish him well for his future career.
