Arsenal's Stephy Mavididi out for season after injury during loan spell

Arsenal teenager Stephy Mavididi will miss the rest of the season after tearing his hamstring while on loan at Charlton.

Mavididi sustained the injury during Charlton's home defeat to Bury in League One on Saturday and has returned to Arsenal for treatment.

The 18-year-old forward underwent a scan and is expected to be out for at least three months.

"He saw a specialist last night and he's set for an operation at the start of next week, but it will keep him out for between 14 to 16 weeks,'' Charlton boss Karl Robinson said.

"He's been in tears, which is sickening because he's been tremendous for us and we wish him all the best. He's been a credit to his family and to Arsenal and we'd love to have him back next year."

Mavididi joined Charlton on loan in January and made five appearances for the club.
