Deji Elerewe joins Bromley


Deji Elerewe has completed a permanent transfer to National League side Bromley for an undisclosed fee with a sell-on clause.

As part of the deal, Charlton have a first refusal clause, meaning the club will be made aware, and can match, any offers that come in for him.

Technical Director Andy Scott said: "It’s a really good move for Deji, who is going to a club he knows well and has succeeded at.

“He’s a fantastic young man who is a credit to our academy. We wish him all the best and will be keeping an eye on his progress.”

An academy graduate who joined the Addicks at the age of 13, Elerewe signed his first professional deal with the club in November 2021 and has gone on to feature 16 times for the first team.

He made a total of 11 appearances in all competitions during an impressive breakthrough campaign in 2021/22 that saw him crowned LFE League One Apprentice of the Year at the EFL awards.

The following season saw the centre-back enjoy successful loan spells with Wealdstone and Bromley, with his late winner booking the latter’s spot in the National League play-off semi-finals for the first time in their history.

Elerewe re-joined the Ravens on loan in October 2023 and made a further eight appearances before being recalled in December 2023.

He now links up with a Bromley side that sit second in the National League.

Everyone at the club would like to thank Deji for his service and wish him all the very best for the future.
