Charlton loan midfielder Koc

Charlton Athletic have signed Standard Liege midfielder Anil Koc on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Liege owner Roland Duchatelet completed a takeover of the Championship club earlier this month and the 18-year-old becomes Chris Powell's third signing from the Belgian side in the January transfer window.

Goalkeeper Yohann Thuram-Ulein and former Leicester midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic have already arrived at The Valley on loan deals following Duchatelet's purchase of the club.

Koc made his Belgian Pro League debut last year but has found first-team opportunities limited so far this campaign.

Although he was born in Belgium and made 10 appearances for the country's under-16s, Koc has since represented Turkey at Under-19s level.

The Addicks are currently 21st in the Championship and sit above the relegation zone only by the virtue of goal difference.
