Young Chelsea midfielder Charlie Wakefield has left the club to join Sky Bet League One outfit Coventry City on an 18-month deal according to The Sky Blues’ official club website.

The 20-year-old winger has featured regularly for The Blues at Development Squad level but has failed to break into the first team picture at Stamford Bridge.

It has now been reported that Wakefield has mutually agreed to the termination of his contract at Chelsea and the player has opted to sign a deal at third tier club Coventry City until summer 2020. The youngster could make his debut for The Sky Blues in their Sky Bet League One fixture against Gillingham at The Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

During his time at Chelsea, Wakefield has won two FA Youth Cups while he has also been a member of a Blues side which have recorded UEFA Youth League glory in consecutive campaigns.

With his days at Stamford Bridge thought to be numbered, Wakefield has recently had trials with a handful of London clubs including Sky Bet Championship pair Millwall and Queens Park Rangers. In the end though, it is Coventry City who have completed the signing of the player who will now look to finally get his career off the ground.
