True Blue: Michael Gyasi has moved to Chelsea from Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee

Chelsea have signed 11-year-old Northampton Town striker Michael Gyasi for an undisclosed fee.

Gyasi plays for the Under-11s and has been with the club’s centre of excellence for the last three years.

The switch includes a variety of add-ons, which are subject to particular targets being met.

Northampton centre of excellence boss Trevor Gould said: ‘Financially the deal is good for us, and the money we will receive will aid our youth development.’

‘While we obviously want to produce and keep our best players, when a Premier League club like Chelsea come knocking, as long as the deal is right for the club, we will never stand in a boy’s way.

‘Not only is this is a superb opportunity for Michael but it reinforces the quality of player we are bringing both into the club and through our centre of excellence.’
