Charlton are delighted to confirm the signing of Yun Suk-Young on loan from Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season.
Yun, a left-back, boasts both Championship and Premier League experience and is also a full South Korea international. He becomes José Riga's second signing in four days, following the arrival on Marco Motta on Friday. 

Riga said: “Yun is a player that will bring us some of the experience that we need in our situation. He knows the Championship and has a good knowledge of English football.

“He is a versatile player that can get forward well and has also played a number of high-pressure games in his career.”

Riga added: “Marco is another player that has good experience of England and has also played for big club’s like Juventus. He gives us some more options and is someone that can play at right-back and also in a back three.

“We have a run of three matches in a week coming soon and both Yun and Marco will reinforce our squad and be and big help to us. They are both very dedicated players and I am very happy to add them to my squad.”

Yun, 26, began his professional career in his homeland with Jeonnam Dragons, making 86 appearances for the club before moving to England to join Rangers.
His Hoops debut came in a 2-0 Capital One Cup victory away at Exeter City in August 2013, with his Championship debut following four days later.
An attack-minded full-back who loves to get forward, Yun enjoyed a short loan stint at Doncaster Rovers during October of 2013 before returning to Rangers and helping them to secure promotion to the Premier League. 
Prior to making 23 appearances in the top flight last season, he headed to the World Cup with South Korea in Brazil and played 90 minutes in all three of their Group H matches.
Yun, who has also represented South Korea at U17, U20 and U23 level, takes the number two shirt.

Meanwhile, Montell Moore has penned a deal until the end of the season after a successful trial with the club’s development squad.
