Following his selection to the Under-21 team, Leeds United adolescent Charlie Crew was promoted to Wales’ senior international training this week.
After making an impression at the Under-17 European Championships this summer and playing a key role for Leeds’ Under-21 team in August, 17-year-old Crew received his second call-up to the Wales Under-21 team earlier this month.

Youngster Crew, signed last summer from Cardiff City, was promoted to the senior group in order to train with players like Joe Rodon, Ethan Ampadu, and Aaron Ramsey while Wales international manager Rob Page awaited the arrival of his entire squad for training prior to this month’s games.

Charlie Crew signs professional contract - Leeds United

The deep-lying midfielder, who turned 17 this summer and led Wales’ Under-17 team to their first-ever appearance at a European Championship, signed his first professional contract with Leeds.
Additionally, Crew has started each of Leeds Under-21s’ Premier League 2 games this year, contributing to three triumphs over Manchester United, Brighton, and Stoke City as Michael Skubala’s team has made a quick start in the 26-team division.

The young player from Leeds will rejoin the Under-21 squad for this month’s friendlies against Liechtenstein on September 8 and Lithuania on September 12.

In the coming week, Wales’ senior team—which includes Whites duo Rodon and Ampadu but without the injured Daniel James—will play South Korea (on September 7) and Latvia (on September 11).
