Charlton Athletic have signed Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 22-year-old has yet to make a senior appearance for United but his temporary switch to The Valley should enable him to gain further first-team experience.
He made four appearances and scored one goal during a two-month loan spell at Peterborough United last term and he also spent time on loan at Royal Antwerp earlier this season.
Petrucci trained with the Charlton squad on Thursday morning and could now feature in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game at Derby County.
The Italian’s time with United has been hampered by a series of injuries, but he has impressed at U21 level and has captained the club’s development squad.
