The 20-year-old right-back was reportedly also a target for Aston Villa, Everton, Celtic and Lazio. Moutaouakil has cost the Addicks £400,000 from French side Chateauroux and he has signed a four-year deal.
'I'm delighted to sign Yassin and we have very high hopes for him,' said Pardew on the clubs official website www.cafc.co.uk. 'He's a player who a number of clubs were very interested in, and we're naturally very pleased he has chosen Charlton.
'He brings exactly the qualities we are going to need in the Championship next season. He's a very honest player who wants to succeed and he has plenty of hunger.
'He's a player I've been aware of for some seven months now, and he's going to be a great addition to our squad for next year.'
Not many Charlton fans have heard of Yassin but in Pards we trust. I can think of a few players who have captained France's U21's that have turned out to be world class. Let`s hope this is another gem in the making.
The signing is sure to fuel increased speculation that England full back Luke Young will now exit The Valley.
The former Spurs player has been linked with possible moves to West Ham, Villa and Everton and he is rated around £3million.
Moutaouakil joins strikers Luke Varney and Chris Iwelumo, and defender Patrick McCarthy, in signing up for Pardew's new look Addicks squad ahead of our Championship season.
