Bolton Wanderers sign Harry Charsley on loan

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm the signing of Everton midfielder Harry Charsley on loan for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.

The 21-year-old has been in the ranks at Goodison Park since the age of nine and after earning his scholarship with the club, he helped the Toffees’ youngsters to secure their respective league title in 2013/14 before being named as their Under-18 Player of the Year the following campaign.

Also a Republic of Ireland youth international at various levels, he boasts a keen eye for goal and finished last season as joint-top goalscorer for Everton’s Under-23s, in turn helping the Blues to secure the Premier League 2 title.

And as a result of his efforts for the Merseyside outfit’s youth sides, Charsley was handed his first team debut back in December 2017 in the club’s final Europa League group game against Apollon Limassol.

Now however, the youngster will continue his development at Macron Stadium and will link up with fellow Toffees academy graduate Antonee Robinson who recently agreed a loan extension with Wanderers.

Charsley will wear the number 20 shirt and goes straight into Phil Parkinson’s squad for this weekend’s Sky Bet Championship clash away at Brentford.

Speaking regarding the acquisition of the highly-rated midfielder meanwhile, the manager said, “Harry is a player we have watched a lot and he can play all across the midfield as well as in behind the striker.

“He’s from Everton’s U23 team where a lot of their players have gone out on loan and have done well with the help of David Unsworth and his team.

“They almost play like a league team, so when you get a player from Everton’s youth ranks, you know that they are ready and are hardened to understand the rigours of what it takes to win games of football.

“With that in mind, we are very much looking forward to working with Harry and he is a very good acquisition for us.”
