SOUTHEND United boss Mark Molesley feels himself Charlie Kelman has secured himself a 'fantastic move' to Queens Park Rangers.

The 18-year-old striker completed a switch to the Championship club earlier this week.

And Molesley feels the move shows just how well Blues bring through young players. 

"The situation was there for a while and Charlie has secured himself a fantastic move," said Molesley.

"It goes to show what a fantastic breeding ground this football club is for young talent.

"He’s got a really good move for himself and it gives someone else an opportunity to stake a claim now too."
