DONE DEAL: Brentford sign Chelsea midfielder Myles Peart-Harris

Brentford have completed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Myles Peart-Harris.

The 18-year-old completed a medical yesterday, Thursday 22 July, before finalising a transfer from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee. He has signed a four-year contract and there is a Club option for an additional year.

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."

Phil Giles, Brentford's co-Director of Football, added: “Over recent seasons we have made sure we have found as many opportunities as possible to give young players a chance to play and develop. Even though we are now playing at a higher level, that principle is one we want to maintain. With that in mind we are looking forward to seeing Myles earn his opportunity and hopefully he can be another young player to make an impact at Brentford."
