Stags capture Charlton striker

14 January 2019

We are delighted to announce that Charlton Athletic striker Nicky Ajose has joined the Stags on loan until the end of the season.

Born in Bury, Ajose began his career with Manchester United, and moved to the Addicks by way of Peterborough, Leeds United and Swindon Town.

The 27-year-old has made 16 appearances for Charlton this season, the majority of which have come in Sky Bet League One.

Ajose won Swindon’s Player of the Season award in 2016, following a campaign where the striker netted 25 times in 40 appearances.

The front man was also part of the Bury side that won promotion from League Two in the 2010-11 season, scoring 13 times as the Shakers finished second in the table.

Manager David Flitcroft said: “Nicky could’ve been in and out of a League One team who are going for promotion and so the hunger and desire he has shown to come to us is what has most impressed me.

“Nicky is a proven goal scorer with nearly 100 goals on his CV at only 27. His qualities will suit the way we play, and the number of quality chances that the team creates.”

“He wants to come here, make games and score goals. His quality in his finishing, intelligence in and around the pitch and movement is fantastic.

“He is a player who can link well with current players in our squad. We have an excellent environment which Nicky will thrive in here.
