SWINDON Town have signed Charlton Athletic striker Josh Davison on loan until the end of the season.

Davison is Town's third January signing, with the Robins hoping he will offer them some more much-needed firepower in the final-third of the pitch. 

The announcement from the club said: "Davison will add a different dimension to the Town front-line. His hunger and style of play should make him an immediate fans' favourite at SN1.

"Davison was highly-sought after by a plethora of different clubs, but ultimately chose to continue his development with Town."

The 22-year-old began his career with Peterborough United where he saw out loan spells with St Neots Town and Wisbech Town.

He then went on to score 16 goals in 21 games for Enfield Town which led to him getting signed by Charlton Athletic. 


He has picked up some league two experience as well, competing a loan spell at Forest Green Rovers last season. 

Swindon Town's Director of Football, Ben Chorley, said: “It’s great to welcome Josh into the group.

“We wanted someone that has played games this season. He’s made 15 appearances at the level above and scored goals.

“He knows what it’s like to be at a big club and play in front of big crowds, another very important factor for the second-half of the season.

“We wish him the very best with us.”

Davison expressed his delight at joining the Reds on loan.

"I'm buzzing to be here and part of the team and I just want to kick on now," he said. 

"I needed game time, the team is doing well, I know a couple of the lads and they play good football. I've watched a few of their games on TV and it appealed to me straightaway when the opportunity came.

"I want to score goals and help the team as much as I can. 

"I'm strong and quick, I like to hold the ball up and get in the box and score some goals."
