Charlton have completed the signing of former Sunderland forward Jordan Cook on a free transfer.

Cook: Charlton's first signing of the summer

Cook becomes Charlton's first signing of the summer after leaving Sunderland earlier this summer.

The 22-year-old has penned a two-year deal at the Valley after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

Addicks boss Chris Powell was delighted to land the forward after he impressed against Charlton during loan spells at Walsall and Carlisle during the last couple of seasons.

"Jordan first came to our attention a couple of seasons back," Addicks boss Chris Powell told the club's official website.

"In my first six months here, he was on loan at Walsall and gave us a few problems.

"You take notice of players, and then we saw him in a few games last year for Carlisle and also for Sunderland.

"He's a young player who we feel can play down the middle, behind the main striker and out wide. He's a utility attacker but we just think for the age he's at, he's worth bringing in and developing."

"He played exceptionally well for Carlisle against us in the game that ultimately won us promotion," said Powell.

"He did some good things in that game, which I have watched again on DVD, and I feel he will supplement the group.

"He's one that we feel could develop into a very good player."
