Charlton have signed George Tucudean from Standard Liège, the club announced on Tuesday morning.

The Romanian striker has signed a three-year contract at The Valley and becomes the club’s seventh first-team recruit of the summer so far.

Tucudean flew out to the Charlton training camp in Spain on Monday evening to complete a medical before joining up with his new team-mates.

He will now remain with the group for the remainder of their time in Andalucía and could feature in the friendly matches against a Gibraltar XI on Wednesday evening and Atlético Clube de Portugal on Saturday.

The 23-year-old is a former Romania youth international who made his name at Dinamo Bucuresti before going on to represent his country’s U21 side.

His performances caught the attention of Standard Liège who he signed for in January 2013 before being loaned back to Dinamo for the duration of the 2013/14 campaign.

Tucudean now moves to SE7 on a permanent basis and will compete for a place up front alongside the likes of Reza Ghoochannejhad, Igor Vetokele, Simon Church and Joe Pigott.

He follows Yoni Buyens, Vetokele, Franck Moussa, Andre Bikey-Amougou, Tal Ben Haim and Johann Berg Gudmundsson, in addition to development squad pairing Zak Ansah and Kurtis Cumberbatch, in moving to The Valley this summer.
