Chelsea sign Rennes teenager Lesley Ugochukwu on a 7-year deal

The nineteen-year-old Lesley Ugochukwu has signed a seven-year contract with the Blues, and extending the deal is possible.

Chelsea has finalized the transfer of midfielder Lesley Ugochukwu from Rennes.

The 19-year-old has entered into a seven-year contract, with Chelsea holding the option to extend his tenure by another year.

“We’re delighted Lesley is joining Chelsea,” co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley told the club’s official website.

“He is an impressive young player who has already made his mark in Ligue 1. He has a huge amount of potential and we know he is going to continue to develop and improve.

“We are pleased that he has joined us in the U.S and that he will be able to integrate with the squad quickly.”

Ugochukwu aims to participate in Chelsea’s last pre-season game against Borussia Dortmund on 3 August, ahead of their Premier League kickoff at home against Liverpool on 13 August.
