Chelsea youngster Charlie Wakefield has surprised his father with a brand new car.

The 18-year-old academy star, who signed a professional deal with the Blues when he was 17, bought a £25,000 Jaguar XE for his old man as a gift for his 50th birthday.

Wakefield Snr can now get rid of his 2003 Ford Focus thanks to the generous deed of his son.

Charlie wrote on social media: “My dad turned 50 years old today and after 2 years of planning his surprise birthday present, the day finally came. I wouldn’t of got as far as I have without this man, I owe him everything.

“To think he’s not missed one of my football matches from the age I started playing, which was 8.. whether the game was round the corner, or 6 hours away, he’d sacrifice anything or anyone, just to make sure he got to my games to support me, no matter what.

“To think of the miles he must of driven, especially in his second hand 03 plate Ford Focus… how it’s survived so many long journeys I’ll never know. He’s always loved luxury cars, but never been able to get one, so to be able to buy him his dream Jaguar car for his 50th birthday, couldn’t of worked out any better.

“Now he’ll enjoy the long journeys up north. He’s watched my journey from the beginning, kept me humble, believed in me, and taught me everything I need to know over the years.

“He deserves everything and I can’t thank him enough. Everyone I know loves him. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Dad, and the man I’ve always looked up to. love you”
