Charlie Daniels (born 7 September 1986 in Walthamstow) is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Bournemouth.


Daniels started his career playing for youth club Ridgeway Rovers and Interwood F.C. then moved onto Norwich City before joining Tottenham Hotspur's youth academy. He worked his way up through to the reserves, before earning his first professional contract in July 2005.

Daniels spent time on loan at Chesterfield during the 2006–07 season, but sustained an injury in only his second game, and returned to Tottenham.[1]

In the summer of 2007, Leyton Orient boss, Martin Ling signed Daniels on loan for the entire League One season, after watching him regularly in the Tottenham reserves.[2]

Following his last game at Orient, Daniels was sent back to Tottenham, where he had a year remaining on his contract. In August 2008, he joined Gillingham on a one-month loan.[3] He made his debut for Gillingham in a 1–0 home win over Accrington Stanley and scored his only goal for the club with a free kick in a 3–0 home win over Grimsby Town.[4] Daniels then returned to Spurs at the end of September and expressed an interest in trying to break into the first team.[5]

Daniels returned to Orient in the January transfer window of 2009 on a free transfer.[6]

In November 2011, Daniels joined Bournemouth, initially on a loan deal as the signing was outside of the transfer window, but with the deal to become permanent in the January 2012 transfer window with the contract lasting for 3 years.
