Stevenage have confirmed the signing of Chelsea youngster Charlie Wakefield on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old winger is currently recovering from injury and will continue his rehabilitation with the Premier League side before joining up with Boro.

Wakefield joined Chelsea at the end of his under-12 year after leaving Brighton & Hove Albion, but broke his ankle a few years later.

An England under-16 international, he made four appearances for Chelsea in the UEFA Youth League in his debut year as a scholar and picked up a winner’s medal after their final win over Shakhtar Donetsk.

Wakefield remained part of the squad as the Blues won the competition again in 2015/16 and signed a new deal until the end of 2018/19.
