So who is Savage? Here's the things you need to know about him.

The surname is a bit of a giveaway, but Charlie is the son of former Leicester and Derby midfielder Robbie Savage.
Robbie was part of the famous Class of '92 and won the youth club alongside the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville brothers before being released and joining Crewe Alexandra.

2. He plays in central midfield

Just like his dad, Savage is a central midfielder who sits in the centre of the pitch and breaks play up. He loves a good tackle and has the energy to run box-to-box, chipping in with two goals and four assists so far this season for the Under-18s.

3. He's a Welsh youth international

Savage was born in Leicester during his dad's time playing there, but has chosen to represent Wales at international level.
He made his debut for the Under 17s back in September 2019 and played five times that year for them but is yet to make the step up to the level above.

4. Won a tournament in Hong Kong

As part of the first-year scholars back in 2018, Savage travelled with United's youth team to Hong Kong to take part in the Jockey Club Youth Football Academy Summit.
United competed in a mini-tournament with some local teams and won, with Savage starting every game. They beat the HK Academy 6-1 in their first game, HK all-stars 2-1 in the semi-finals before beating Guandong Under-17s 3-0 in the final.

5. FM21 rating

While he didn't make the cut for FIFA 21 or PES 2021 this year, Savage does feature in FM 2021. He's given a potential rating of three stars, meaning they have tipped him to become a pretty decent player.
His stand-out attributes are his technical, fitness and passing stats which sum up his all-round game pretty well.
