Leeds United defender Charlie Cresswell joins Millwall on loan for the season

Cresswell, 19, has made five appearances for Leeds and is highly rated in the club’s academy.

Millwall finished ninth in the Championship last season and featured in the play-offs until the final weeks of the season.

Cresswell is a well-built and strong centre-back with good technical ability and his physical development over the past two years has made him look increasingly ready for the first team.

The problem is that Leeds already have four more experienced centre-backs, which reduces Cresswell’s chances of breaking through in the coming season. Millwall will give him a chance to get playing time in the coming season.
