The Chelsea striker joins on a permanent basis

Charlie Brown arrives at Stadium MK from the Stamford Bridge production line which has also seen the likes of Patrick Bamford and Lewis Baker star for MK Dons.

The 21-year-old forward has been a regular on the scoresheet for Chelsea's development squad in the last few years, notably playing in the EFL Trophy where he has six goals in nine appearances in the last three seasons.

Brown began his career at Ipswich before making the switch to the Blues in 2016 where he made a big impression in his debut campaign, scoring 10 goals from 20 appearances - most of which came from the substitute's bench.

Continuing to make a name for himself, he helped the U18s to the quadruple in 2017/18 before going on to net 21 goals in 30 appearances in the following campaign.

Brown's performances earned him a loan move to Belgium at the start of 2020 with second division side Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, but the pandemic cut short his time there, limiting him to just three appearances.
