Nigerian star Ajose departs Charlton Athletic

Nicky Ajose has rejoined Swindon Town on loan until the end of the season from fellow League One side Charlton Athletic subject to EFL approval, according to Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old left Swindon for Charlton last summer and has scored seven goals in 28 appearances for the Addicks this season.

His last appearance came against Bristol Rovers on January 2 and he now returns to the club where he netted 24 times in League One last term.

Charlton manager Karl Robinson said: "It's important at this stage of his career for Nicky to be playing regularly and we are not able to guarantee that here at the moment.

"Hopefully he'll enjoy being back in familiar surroundings, score some goals for Swindon and we'll then see where we are in the summer.
