County agree terms for exciting young winger

Stockport County is delighted to announce that it has agreed terms with Colchester United for the transfer of winger Jayden Fevrier, who will join the club once the transfer window has opened, subject to EFL approval.

The 21-year-old joins teammate Jay Mingi in making the move from Colchester to Edgeley Park this Summer, signing for an undisclosed fee and penning a three-year-deal with the club option of an additional year.

The former West Ham academy product is capable of playing on either wing or at wing-back, where he was often utilised during his time at Colchester. He was a standout performer at the JobServe Community Stadium last season, with his exciting performances in wide areas seeing him voted by supporters as their Young Player of the Year.

Jayden made 48 appearances in all competitions in a breakthrough season with the Us, with his four goals and four assists helping them to retain their EFL status on the final day of the campaign. Comfortable with both feet with an ability to take on and beat his man, Fevrier completed 115 dribbles in League Two last season – at least 31 more than any other player in League Two and more than any player in League One.

A former England Youth International, he joined West Ham’s academy at the age of six before going on to make his debut for their U18s as a 14-year-old. A year later, he became the youngest ever player to represent the Hammers’ reserve side, before signing his first pro-deal with the Premier League side in 2021.

He was named winner of the club’s Dylan Tombides Award, given to the Academy’s outstanding scholar, that same year, before completing his move to Colchester the following season in his first taste of first-team football.

With a number of high-profile clubs interested in securing his services this summer, we are delighted to have signed Jayden to a long-term contract at Edgeley Park as the club continues its preparations for League One next season. Jayden will wear the number ten shirt during his time at Edgeley Park, and will join the rest of the squad in reporting for pre-season on July 1st.

First-Team Manager, Dave Challinor said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have been able to bring Jayden to the football club. A big thanks to Mark for his backing in what is a real investment on his behalf.

“Jayden’s profile is one that we tried to get last summer but weren’t able to get the right one. Not only do we feel we have the right one now, but he is our player, a young one that we can definitely improve and will become a real asset for the club.

“He already has the pace, power and dribbling ability to cause real problems; it’s our job to refine that and get him into areas on the pitch where he can hurt defenders and add the one thing missing from his game which is numbers around goals and goal involvements, something that we had success with last season with Louie on the left hand side.

“Jayden has the ability to play anywhere across the front line but spent most of last season in a wing back role which, although he does it very well, probably prevented the amount of goal scoring moments he had. Jayden is hugely motivated to improve and is very analytical about his game, which we all feel are the characteristics that can absolutely thrive in our environment.

“In the times we’ve met him, we can all see not only how driven he is but most importantly how excited he is to be coming into the club and looking forward to playing at Edgeley Park. I’m sure he’ll be a big hit with our supporters as his profile will excite and get fans off their seats whilst still allowing us to be a front foot, high intensity team. We are all looking forward to helping him in this next part of his career and I know he’ll get a great welcome.”

Director of Football, Simon Wilson said:

“We welcome Jayden to Stockport County in what is a really exciting transfer for us.

“When we’ve reflected on the needs of the next level, and the ones above that – we know that a clear requirement is pace and power. Jayden has this in spades and as such there are very few limitations to his career.

“We are getting him at a great age and great moment. It’s a long-term contract and we expect to be able to benefit from the progression he can make. He is another young, exciting, front foot player and someone we think can get Edgeley Park off its seat.  He has come in determined to make an impact with us, and we are really looking forward to working with him over the coming years.”
