Charlton Athletic have completed the signing of Nigerian defender, Deji Oshilaja, on a free transfer.

Oshilaja joined the Championship club on a two-year deal on Monday night.

Speaking after joining Charlton, Oshilaja told the club’s official website: “Charlton is a great club with a great fanbase and I’m really excited to get going. I was here (The Valley) for the play-off semi-final and the atmosphere was buzzing then so I can’t wait to get started.”

On his part, Charlton manager, Lee Bowyer said: “I’m delighted. He’s another very good player. A leader, he was captain of his club last year so it’s becoming a trend. Our defenders are all leaders and winners.

“He’s a powerful boy and he can play all across the back. He’s very good in all those positions across the back, he’s versatile and that’s something we need.

“Lyle (Taylor) knows him well (from Wimbledon). He’s been having conversations with him, telling him how good it is at our place, to try and encourage him to come because there were other clubs interested in him.”
