Charlie Savage – Man United
Charlie was actually born in Leicester, though his father Robbie had moved on to play for Birmingham City by then. Like his dad, he is a central midfielder who has come up through the ranks at Man United.
Robbie was at City’s training ground in recent months to watch Charlie play against Leicester for United’s under-23s, where the young Wales under-19 international impressed at right-back.
Savage junior made his debut for United in the Champions League in December 2021 while, in an emotional moment, his father was commentating on the match for BT Sport.
Charlie Wellens – Man United
Just like the Savages, Richie Wellens’ son Charlie has followed in his father’s footsteps by playing central midfield for Man United. He is the same age as his first-name namesake Charlie so they have progressed through the ranks together while playing in the same position.
Wellens is out of contract this summer but a decision on his future is yet to be announced. He has already been linked with a move to Roma where he would reunite with former United boss Jose Mourinho.
Jaden & Reigan Heskey – Man City
Former Leicester striker and hometown hero Emile Heskey has not one but two sons playing for Manchester City.
Jaden, 16, is about to start a two-year scholarship at Man City and has already agreed a professional contract which will take effect on his 17th birthday. The young forward is highly rated at City and they moved early to tie him down to a deal. His younger brother Reigan also plays for City.
Jayden Danns – Liverpool
If the others haven’t done so already, this one will make you feel old. Neil Danns’ 16-year-old son Jaden is currently plying his trade with Liverpool under-18s.
He has represented England at under-16 level and broke into the Reds’ youth team a year early. The midfielder is also highly rated by his club and has a bright future ahead of him in the game.
Henry Wise – Watford
Rounding out this list is 22-year-old Henry Wise, whose Premier League career looks like it could well be over, for now at least.
After progressing through the ranks at QPR, Arsenal and Derby; Wise moved to Watford in 2019. He has played as a central midfielder for their under-23s and, despite being 22, has only made one senior appearance: from the bench in an FA Cup defeat to Tranmere Rovers.
It has just been announced that Wise will be leaving Watford, who have been relegated to the Championship, at the end of his contract on June 30.
