Chelsea defender Jay Dasilva rejoins Charlton Athletic on a season-long loan 

Chelsea ​full-back Jay Dasilva has rejoined Charlton on a season-long loan.

Dasilva captained England’s U19s to European Championship victory last week and is back at the Valley after impressing during a loan spell last season.

He said: “I’m very happy to be back at Charlton. I really enjoyed myself here last season and I feel like I did well when I got my chance in the team. We finished strongly and I’m hoping that I can build on that momentum when the new season starts.

“I really enjoyed playing under Karl Robinson. He gave me a lot of freedom when I was on the pitch and hopefully this season I can do as well as I can, I can help the team and we can get Charlton back into the Championship.”
Robinson is also happy to see Dasilva return.

He said: “Everyone at the football club saw how influential he was in the last few games of the season. He worked really hard to put himself in that position to play. We had so many options in that position over the summer but we held out and we waited and we waited.

“One thing I’ve noticed about being here is everyone loves attacking full-backs who get crosses in and play with a youthful enthusiasm which Jay does. It’s an important one for us.

“He brings pace, talent, desire and a willingness to improve. He’s only going to keep improving.

“Winning the trophy in the summer and captaining that team to victory, it was an amazing time for him. Hopefully he can have an amazing season after his successful summer.”
