Jonathan Obika: Pictured during a previous loan spell with Yeovil

The 22-year-old, who has appeared twice for Spurs' first team this term, is now committed to the club until the summer of 2014.

But Obika's immediate future lies in the Championship with Charlton, who have brought him in as a replacement for the departed Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Manager Chris Powell said: "After losing Bradley Wright-Phillips I just felt we were short in the striker department.

"Jonathan is a player we have kept an eye on this season in a number of games. I saw him when he played against us and he has an eye for a goal.

"He is a player full of potential and it is a chance for us to have a good look at him. Hopefully he will come into the group and make an impact."

Obika has previously spent time in the Championship with Crystal Palace, though his most recent loan spell was with League One Yeovil.

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
