On the heels of his fairly disastrous loan to Middlesbrough, Veljkovic will get another chance in the Championship.

Milos Veljkovic is going back on loan. Tottenham's Serbian defensive-midfielder-slash-center-half will be playing his football at another Football League Championship team, this time with Charlton Athletic, until the end of the season. Spurs announced the loan via tweet from their official account:

Veljkovic is coming off of a rather disastrous loan at Middlesbrough, where he barely played at all, having made only three appearances for Aitor Karanka's Boro. It was hoped by some that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino might give Veljkovic a chance with the Spurs first team, as he has done with the likes of Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, and Nabil Bentaleb. If Milos had stayed it might have meant that we'd see the departure of a current first team defender such as Younes Kaboul. No such luck.

Charlton are currently 16th in the Championship. I don't know enough about their squad to know how realistic it is that Milos gets regular minutes, but hopefully he gets more playing time with the Addicks than he did at Boro.
