Chelsea youngster Jay Dasilva yesterday returned to The Valley on a season long loan deal from the reigning Premier League Champions.

The England Under 19 skipper was with us for the second half of the season last term and impressed and over the summer he was only skippering his country to European Championship success at Under 19 level and now he’s looking forward to linking back up with Charlton and hopefully having a much better year under Karl Robinson where we push further up the table.

Speaking to the Official Site after signing the terms on his 12 month loan, manager Karl Robinson was delighted to welcome him back.

‘Everyone at the football club saw how influential he was in the last few games of the season. He worked really hard to put himself in that position to play. We had so many options in that position over the summer but we held out and we waited and we waited. One thing I`ve noticed about being here is everyone loves attacking full backs who get crosses in and playing with a youthful enthusiasm which Jay does. It`s an important one for us.’

He went on to add.

‘He brings pace, talent, desire and a willingness to improve. He`s only going to keep improving. Winning the trophy in the summer and captaining that team to victory, it was an amazing time for him. Hopefully he can have an amazing season after his successful summer.’

Dasilva himself added.

‘I`m very happy to be back at Charlton for the season. I really enjoyed myself here last season and I feel like I did well when I got my chance in the team. We finished strongly and I`m hoping that I can build on that momentum when the new season starts. I really enjoyed playing under Karl. He gave me a lot of freedom when I was on the pitch and hopefully this season I can do as well as I can, I can help the team and we can get Charlton back into the Championship.’
