Richard Montague, who is on Notts County’s our board and leads on recruitment, said: “Many people will know Charlie’s name from the many successes he enjoyed as captain of Chelsea’s youth team, which also included the likes of Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Dominic Solanke.

“His immense technical ability has been apparent from a very young age and following his departure from Chelsea he has continued to demonstrate his capabilities at a very high level and in different environments across Europe.

“We see him as being in a similar mould to Matt Palmer and feel his arrival will give us excellent depth in the midfield area.

“With the likes of John Bostock and Dan Crowley experiencing similarly high-profile youth careers, we believe Charlie can follow in their footsteps by finding a home here at Meadow Lane and flourishing as a result.”
