West Ham midfielder Diego Poyet has rejoined Charlton on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old, the son of former Chelsea and Tottenham player Gus Poyet, moved to Upton Park from the Addicks in 2014 but has struggled to break into the first team.

Poyet was previously on loan at MK Dons, but was recalled by West Ham over the weekend after dropping out of favour.

Poyet has now rejoined the club where he began his career and was named player of the year in 2013-14.

"I'm very proud to have Diego back," Charlton boss Karel Fraeye told the club's official website.

"He was our player of the year for a very good reason and it has hurt to see him play for other Championship clubs since then, so we're delighted to have him back here.

"He's a player who is not afraid on the ball and, although he is very young, he has played a lot of games in the Championship already.

"We know that Diego is someone who will play for the shirt, and we have already seen today that everyone in the building is so happy to see him back."
