Striker announces delight after Chelsea transfer deal is signed, sealed and delivered

MK Dons have completed the permanent signing of Chelsea striker Charlie Brown.

With Carlton Morris departing the club to join Championship outfit Barnsley at the start of the transfer window, the Dons needed to bring in reinforcements up front in order to bring a few more goals to the squad, and have done so with a player that has been prolific at various youth levels.

Brown, 21, made the move to Stamford Bridge from Ipswich Town in 2016, where he netted 53 goals and provided 12 assists in 108 appearances for Chelsea’s Under-23s, Under-19s and Under-18s.

And upon signing for the MK Dons, the talented young striker has opened up and announced his delight at the deal: “I’m over the moon to be here, this is an opportunity I’ve been waiting for and I can’t wait to get on the pitch and show the fans what I can do.”

“The Gaffer has got a really strong plan for the team and I’m really excited to be a part of that and have the opportunity to help the Club get to where it wants to be.”

“I’ve seen the way the team plays, with a lot of possession and creating a lot of chances for the strikers. It’s going to be up to me to finish those chances off and I’ll be looking to do that as often as I can!”

He will have an opportunity to earn first-team football at Stadium MK and can learn from the likes of Cameron Jerome, who has played at all levels of the game and currently leads the line for the Dons.

This is a very good move for the lad to make, as he was never really going to get a chance to shine in that Chelsea first team, especially with all the top-level attackers they have at the club already.
