Charlton sign highly-rated striker
Charlton Athletic have confirmed the permanent signing of Ronnie Schwartz from Champions League side FC Midtjylland for an undisclosed fee.
The highly-rated striker has signed a two-and-a-half-year-deal with the Addicks to become the club’s first signing of the January transfer window.
Schwartz, a natural goalscorer, has netted 119 career goals in 287 appearances, and was the top scorer in the Danish First Division in 2018/19 with Silkeborg.
He ended the 2019/20 season as the Danish Superliga’s top scorer, as FC Midtjylland were crowned Danish champions.
Charlton Manager Lee Bowyer explained the striker is the perfect fit as part of the club’s transfer strategy. He said: “His finishing is very good, I witnessed it first hand in training today. To see him finishing the way he does and know that he is going to improve is a big plus.
“Strikers tend win you games, once we create chances he is a fox in the box. His work rate is good, his movement is good and he’s very clever. He’s got all the experience, so it’s a great signing.”
