Chelsea youngster Jeremie Boga has left Stamford Bridge and moved to Serie A side Sassuolo in a permanent deal.
Boga made just one competitive appearance for Chelsea’s first team last season after shining in Chelsea’s pre-season games last summer. He started the opening game of the 2017/18 Premier League season at home to Burnley, but was substituted after just 18 minutes when Gary Cahill was sent off in the 3-2 defeat to Burnley.
Chelsea have reportedly inserted a buy-back clause in the deal, that will allow the club to bring the 21-year-old attacking midfielder back to the Premier League if he impresses in Serie A.
Chelsea thanked Boga on the club’s official website: “We thank Jeremie for his service and wish him well in his future career.”
