Our left winger signed on loan for the Addicks on transfer deadline day and the 25-year-old says he hopes to play an integral part of their push for promotion.

Cook is nearing full fitness after a hip injury he sustained during his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury but he insists he’s almost 100% and raring to go.

He told the Charlton’s official website: ‘I can’t wait to get started. I’m really pleased to be here. It’s a great club and I’m looking forward to getting the first game under my belt and hopefully playing a lot of games here.

‘Obviously I’ve been out for a while, but I don’t want people to think I’ve come here to use this as a place to get fit. I want to show the Charlton fans what I can do.

‘I was out for five months with a knee injury, and then in my first game back, I unfortunately strained a muscle in my hip. That was three weeks ago and now I’m only a week away from resuming full training again, so I’m hoping to probably make my debut for Charlton in the Watford game if things go to plan.’

  • This is a strange one, why has he gone to the Valley when he is saying that he has not gone there to get fit ?, and why does he need to show the Charlton fans what he can do ?.
    Will he ever get to show US what he can do ?. Too many questions and not enough answers, a statement from the club would be helpful.

  • I hope he comes back. I for one would like to see what he is made of. From what I’ve read, he is alright. Anyone know if he is any good in Football Manager?

  • I have to agree with you davidjwilkins! I really want to see what he could do in a Fulham Shirt. He’s not fantastic on Football Manager.
