Player completes Chelsea medical in the UK. Set to be announced as new Chelsea signing

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Lesley Ugochukwu has completed his medical in UK as new Chelsea player.

Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign midfielder Lesley Ugochukwu from Rennes for €27m (£23.1m).

The Blues are yet to decide whether the 19-year-old will go into Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team squad or go out on loan.

A temporary move to Strasbourg, the Ligue 1 side in which Chelsea own a majority stake, has been mooted.

The 19-year-old predominantly plays as a holding midfielder and has won six caps for France U19s.
