Christian Saydee

Date of birth:
10th May 2002
Date signed:
31st January 2022

Exciting striking prospect Christian Saydee was propelled into Eddie Howe's first-team squad following an impressive start to 2019/20.

By the end of November, Saydee led the goalscoring charts for the under-18s with 13 and won the club's October goal-of-the-month award for a stunning 35-yard strike in a 4-2 win at Swindon.

He signed for Pro Touch Soccer Academy when he was nine before joining the youth ranks at Reading.

Born in Hillingdon, he spent seven-and-a-half years with the Royals before signing for the Cherries when he was 16.

He made a bright start to 2018/19 before rupturing his MCL during the Cherries’ FA Youth Cup victory over Aston Villa.

Despite spending the rest of the season on the sidelines, he still finished the campaign with 18 goals and 18 assists.

After moving into the under-21s programme, Saydee continued his development and despite a Covid-19 campaign in 2020/21 was on target in the Central League Cup final at St George's Park when the Cherries lifted the trophy after defeating Carlisle United.

Next taking in a productive trip with the first team to Marbella for their pre-season training camp, Saydee proved he was worthy of first-team playing time under incoming head coach Scott Parker.

The striker made a substitute appearance in the Carabao Cup tie with MK Dons, making an immediate mark as he scored his first senior goal from close range before then earning an assist after teeing David Brooks up for the final strike in the 5-0 win.

Saydee's opening EFL appearances soon followed, the teenager coming off the bench in the first two matches of the Championship season against West Brom and then Nottingham Forest.

On transfer deadline day in January 2022, Saydee joined League One side Burton Albion on a loan deal until the end of the season.
