The 18-year-old, who came through the ranks at Manchester City, is highly rated at Middlewood Road having risen through the ranks into the U21s, and this season he’s spent practically every match day warming up with the first team goalkeepers.

Charles is one of four goalkeepers currently part of the first team setup at Wednesday alongside Cameron Dawson, James Beadle and Devis Vasquez, and should the Colombian leave – as expected – this month he will Danny Röhl’s third choice stopper.

But with actual game time unlikely it has already been previously reported that a loan move may be on the cards for the teenager, and the Wednesday boss says that a decision on what happens next will be made in conjunction with the player himself.

Röhl explained, “I think there will be a decision in the next weeks, for sure. We need to do what is best for him - I see him as a potential goalkeeper for the future for the club, which is good, so it’s about making a decision that is right for the club and what we need, but also good for Pierce.

“We’ll decide together, and then we’ll look at what we can do. At the moment I’m very happy, very fine, with the goalkeepers that are here.”

Charles signed a long-term deal at Hillsborough when he penned his first professional contract in 2022, and he’ll be eager to push on over the next 12 months whether it involves a loan spell or not.
