Charlton added striker Nicky Ajose to their ranks on in June 2016 when he joined the club from Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old penned a three-year deal with the club and became Russell Slade’s third signing since taking over as Manager earlier that month. Ajose scored 24 goals in League One last year for Swindon.
Beginning his career with Manchester United, Ajose joined home-town club Bury on loan in 2010, where he netted an impressive 13 goals in 28 appearances.

A year later he signed permanently for Peterborough United. He scored seven times in 24 league games for the Posh, and also embarked on loan stints at Scunthorpe United, Chesterfield, Crawley Town, Bury and Swindon before moving to Leeds in 2014.

A six-month loan spell at Crewe Alexandra saw him get back on the goal trail and in September 2015 he made the permanent switch back to Swindon.

From there, he regularly hit the back of the net and finished last season with 25 goals to his name, 24 of which came in League One, which saw him named in the Football Manager Football League Team of the Year for 2015/16.
