CHARLIE SAVAGE, SON of former Wales midfielder and current BT Sport football pundit Robbie Savage, has signed his first professional contract with Manchester United.

Similarly to his father — who also began his career at Old Trafford but failed to make the grade and joined Crewe in 1994 — Savage operates in central midfield, where he’s made 19 appearances in all competitions for United’s U18s this season, scoring two goals and providing five assists.

The 17-year-old generally performs a box-to-box role and will aim to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans in due course.

Robbie Savage came up in United’s ‘Class of ’92′ but never made a senior appearance for the club.

Nonetheless, he enjoyed a successful career with spells at Leicester, Birmingham, Blackburn and Derby, while also earning 39 international caps for Wales.
