Deji Elerewe joins Wealdstone on loan

Deji Elerewe in action at Dartford

Charlton academy graduate Deji Elerewe has joined National League side Wealdstone on loan until January 2nd.

The 18-year-old is coming off an outstanding season that saw him earn his men’s first-team debut, sign a professional contract with the Addicks and collect the LFE League One Apprentice of the Year accolade at the EFL awards.

The centre-back made 11 appearances for the Addicks during the 2021/22 season - including three games in the club's League One campaign. Charlton have the option to recall Elerewe at any point during the loan after the first 28 days. 

Elerewe joins Wealdstone after Addicks trio Charlie Barker, Aaron Henry and Charles Clayden spent time on loan at the Ruislip-based club last season.

Charlton fans can support the academy by signing up to the Valley Gold scheme. Valley Gold enables fans to support the club’s academy in unearthing the talents of tomorrow, as well as giving them the chance to win cash prizes.
