Charlton loan Thuram-Ulien

Charlton Athletic have brought in Standard Liege goalkeeper Yohann Thuram-Ulein on loan for the rest of the season.

The Championship club were bought earlier this month by Belgian businessman Roland Duchatelet, who also owns Liege.

Former Leicester midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic has already arrived at The Valley from Liege since the takeover was completed and he has now been joined by Thuram-Ulein.

The 25-year-old is the cousin of former France international and World Cup winner Lilian, and started his career at Monaco.

He only joined Liege last summer from Troyes, but will now spend the second half of the campaign with Chris Powell's Charlton side.

Thuram-Ulein was not signed in time to be eligible for Tuesday's FA Cup third-round tie against Oxford United, but will be available for Saturday's league game away to Middlesbrough.
