Another one gone!!

Brentford have signed Chelsea midfielder Myles Peart-Harris for an undisclosed fee.

The Premier League newcomers have taken the 18-year-old across west London on a four-year deal.

Peart-Harris – an England youth international – came through Chelsea’s youth system but leaves without making a first-team appearance.

That’s a massive exaggeration, but there are a fair few making the choice to leave this summer in search supposedly greener first-team pathways, and that latest in that line is young Myles Peart-Harris, who today joined nearby Brentford for an undisclosed fee (presumably fairly small; think £1-2m).

The recently promoted Bees, back in the top division for the first time in three-quarters of a century, agreed a four-year deal with the midfielder.

Bees boss 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.”

Myles Peart-Harris finished as the Development Squad’s joint-top goalscorer last season (11 goals in 23 appearances).

Now he will continue his development at Brentford, and we can only wish him the best of luck.
