Matt Smith has been recalled from his loan with Swindon Town and has joined fellow League One side Charlton Athletic on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
The 20-year-old midfielder, who has been at the club since under-9 level, had been on loan with Swindon since August and moves to south London to continue his development.
Matt was a regular in the under-23s last season and frequently trained with the first-team squad. His fine performances were rewarded with his selection into the first-team matchday squad on six occasions after the season’s restart, including being an unused substitute in the Emirate FA Cup final victory over Chelsea.
We wish Matt the best of luck during his time with Charlton Athletic.
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
