Charlton Athletic have signed Standard Liege goalkeeper Yohann Thuram-Ulien on loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old, cousin of former France international Lilian Thuram, graduated from Monaco's Academy before switching to fellow French club Troyes.

Thuram-Ulien duly joined Standard Liege in the summer but has struggled to establish himself at the Belgian outfit.

He has not been signed in time for Tuesday's FA Cup third-round clash against Oxford but will compete with Ben Hamer and Ben Alnwick in a bid to make his debut in Saturday's Sky Bet Championship trip to Middlesbrough.

Thuram-Ulien becomes the second Standard Liege player to link up with the Addicks in January after midfielder Astrit Ajdarevic, also on loan until the end of the campaign.

Belgian businessman Roland Duchatelet, who owns four football clubs including Liege, successfully completed a takeover of Charlton earlier this month.
