Jonathan Obika has been recalled from his Brighton loan by Tottenham.

The striker was signed by Albion on a 93 day loan in January but had made only eight appearances for us scoring one goal, which came on his only start against Port Vale in the FA cup.

Since Obika arrived David Rodriquez and Jesse Lingard have also been signed with Will Hoskins and Craig Mackail-Smith closing in on first team returns, when Lingard arrived I’d said that I wouldn’t be surprised if the 23 year old ended up going back to White Hart Lane early and he has.

A return to the Premier League side was confirmed on the official website this afternoon with him instantly being loaned out to Championship rivals Charlton until the end of the season.

Albion play on Charlton at the Amex next month so Obika could come up against us.
