‘Suits me’ – Midfielder explains why quitting Man City for Championship was the right move

The midfielder joined Southampton in the summer transfer window, departing the treble-winners. The teenager made his Premier League debut for Pep Guardiolas side at the end of last season but felt a move to the Saints would help his first-team prospects.

It meant Charles leaving his boyhood club and while that wasn&apost a straightforward call, the 19-year-old believes he&aposs made the right choice to continue his development.

Its my boyhood club so it wasnt easy but it was clear that Southampton was the right option for me,” he told the Belfast Telegraph. The manager plays a good style of football and it really suits me so that really attracted me to the club.

I think the move is huge because Im playing against men every week which coming into the (international) camp allows me to come in and go straight into the games and be able to play like I like to play.
