An attacking defender or midfielder, with a sweet left foot, Charlie Daniels is seen very much as one for the future, with the current loan deals gaining him valuable first team experience.

Attended Highams Park School in Chingford and had a spell training with Norwich City before entering the Spurs Academy.

Started off in the Under-18s as a left sided midfielder, but was moved back to left back when he became part of the reserve set-up.  Taken by Roy McFarland on loan to Chesterfield and was soon given his league debut, but suffered an ankle injury after three games which saw him return to Tottenham early.

A useful player who has a good cross on him when he overlaps and also has pace to get back and defend.  Tall and good in the air, Daniels also has a good finish.  With Reto Ziegler leaving the club, it cleared one obstacle to getting a first team place, but with the club shelling out 10 million on Gareth Bale, it once more saw a door slam shut.

Spent 2007-08 on loan at Leyton Orient, where he played regular first team football in a tough environment and was a favourite with his attacking intentions from full back.  Returned to Spurs at the end of the season and went out on loan at the start of 2008-09 to Gillingham for a month.

On his return, Charlie slipped back into the reserves, but out of the blue, he was allowed to leave in the January 2009 transfer window to join Leyton Orient on a free transfer.

Settling in at Orient, Daniels developed into a midfielder-cum defender, with his left foot becoming a useful weapon, but with changes in management and the club struggling to pull away from the bottom echelons of the table in 2019-11, Charlie went on loan to League Two Bournemouth in November and during the following transfer window, he signed on a three year deal with the Cherries.  He was part of the Boiurnemouth side who reached the Premier League for the first time and became a regular as an attacking left wing back.
