Charlton have signed West Ham striker Frank Nouble on a month's loan and he will go straight into the squad against Brentford tomorrow. Born in Lewisham to Ivorian parents, he was originally with the Chelsea youth set up and turned down a professional contract with them in 2009.
The 19-year-old had only been back at the Hammers for a week after a similar spell at Barnsley, and captained the reserves in their 1-1 draw away to Sunderland on Tuesday.
The move will reunite Nouble with club-mate Matthew Fry, and also assistant manager Alex Dyer - who left the club last month to become Chris Powell's No. 2. In all, Nouble played four times for Barnsley, having previously been on loan at Swindon Town earlier this season.
