Centre-half Christian finished the 2015-16 campaign with some commanding performances during two tournament campaigns in the Netherlands, catching the eye at both the NextGen Series in Amsterdam and the subsequent Terborg Tournament.
Prior to that, he'd switched between Under-21s and Under-18s duties, ending the domestic season having played 11 times for the Under-21s in the league, scoring once, and having netted a further goal in two Premier League Under-21 International Cup outings.
He also made 14 appearances for the Under-18s, many of them as captain, and scored once, while playing one game in the FA Youth Cup.
Christian picked up some experience of being around a senior squad during a loan spell at Yeovil Town between November, 2015, and January, 2016. He did not make a competitive appearance for them but appeared on the bench four times in League Two.
Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and brought up in London, Christian started 18 times and scored twice for our Under-18s in 2013-14, despite being kept out by injury for a spell in the middle of that campaign.
A former pupil of Finchley Catholic High School, he won four County Cups as a youngster and was also part of the England Under-16s side that won the Victory Shield in 2012.
Domestically, he impressed up against experienced striker Gary Hooper on his league debut for our Under-21s at Norwich in October, 2014, and by the end of the 2014-15 season he'd made six starts at that level, scoring a header in a 2-0 win over Fulham at White Hart Lane in May, 2015.
A member of the side that won the Premier League Under-18 Champions Cup in September, 2014, as well as the IMG Cup in Florida in December, 2014, he also started 16 league games for our Under-18s and appeared in four games in the FA Youth Cup as we made it through to the semi-finals during that campaign.
