Charlton loan for Reds starlet Eccleston

Charlton have completed the loan signing of Liverpool forward Nathan Eccleston until the end of the season.

Eccleston, 20, made his first senior start for the Reds in the Europa League against Utrecht in December having already made five substitute appearances this campaign.

He joined up with his new team-mates on Wednesday to participate in training ahead of the paperwork being completed on Thursday.

There is no recall clause in Eccleston's loan contract, which runs out on May 31, and he looks set to be invovled in the Addicks' League One visit to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Eccleston wrote on his Twitter page: "Happy and looking forward to the challenge at Charlton. With hard work the team is capable of achieving success."

The Manchester-born striker revealed Liverpool team-mate Jonjo Shelvey, who made a permanent move in the opposite direction in the summer, helped him decide to make the switch to The Valley.

"There were a number of teams interested in me but Jonjo persuaded me to come and sign for Charlton,'' Eccleston told Addicks' official website. "He said Charlton were a good football club and that I would play down here and get in the team and do well.''

Eccleston also thanked former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson for giving him valuable first-team experience.

"I wasn't sure if I was going to stay with the first team after pre-season or go back with the reserves,'' he said. "Roy came in and liked what he saw and wanted to work with me and for me to be part of the squad and I feel like I have benefited from being with them.

"Although we are not doing well this season it is still a hard team to break into.''
