As expected, striker Tony Watt has headed out of The Valley and joined Belgian second division side Oud-Heverlee Leuven.

Manager Karl Robinson had admitted last week that the player would be departing and he has now signed a permanent deal with his new side.

Having joined Charlton in January 2015 from Standard Liege, he went on to make a total of 56 appearances for the club, scoring ten goals, but having fallen out of favour his time with us also saw him take in loan spells with Cardiff City, Blackburn Rovers and Hearts.

Speaking to the Official Site as the move was confirmed, Robinson said.

‘Tony felt that it was best for his career that he had a fresh challenge and we wish him the best of luck for the future.’

Charlton have not confirmed a fee for the deal.
