London club Brentford have announced the signing of midfielder Myles Peart-Harris from Chelsea on a four-year contract, continuing the exodus of young players from the club.
Chelsea academy graduates Fikayo Tomori, Marc Guehi and Lewis Bate have all left Chelsea this summer.
The 18 year old Peart-Harris leaves Chelsea after ten years at the club and has represented England at youth level.
Brentford manager Thomas Frank said: “Myles is a very talented young player and an exciting signing for us. We see him playing as an ‘eight’ in our system and he fits the position profile perfectly for that.
“He is a dynamic midfield player, and he drives forward with the ball. Myles has great quality on the ball. He can score goals and deliver assists for us. He is great at arriving in the penalty area at the right time.
“There is also lots of development potential for our coaches to work with. We think there will be lots of areas where he will get better, particularly defensively, but he has some great attributes, and we believe we can maximise his potential.”
