The Addicks currently lie in 14th on the Championship table after securing promotion as the Champion team from League One last season.
The move is very much only a short-term stay with Frimpong set to return to the Emirates on New Year’s day, which will surely open up loan moves to other clubs in the January window, preferably in the Premier League.
The Ghanaian midfielder has only recently made a full comeback from a serious knee injury he suffered while on loan with the Wolverhampton Wanderers earlier this year and has only featured for Arsenal in the reserves and the League Cup this season.
Amidst recent rumours of an exit, ‘Frimmy’ revealed via Twitter that he had every intention of remaining a Gunner after stating he is not in the last year of his contract, but also admitted that a loan move was imminent with playing time at the Emirates limited.
For now, regular playing time in the Championship should give him a good warm-up towards a loan move to a Premier League side and to see whether he has shaken off his troublesome proneness to knee injuries.

After such lengthy lay-offs in his career, these temporary moves are certainly the best option for Frimpong to re-build his career as an Arsenal player, while also allowing Arsene to assess his credentials as a potential future Gunner. The months ahead certainly are certainly important ones for Frimmy. DENCH!
