Chelsea midfielder Romeo Lavia has been ruled out for the season after a setback in his recovery from injury.

Chelsea have confirmed in a statement that the £53m summer signing “will not feature again this season”.

Romeo Lavia joined Chelsea from Southampton last summer, but has barely featured since making the move to Stamford Bridge.

The 20-year-old sustained a significant thigh injury on his debut for the club against Crystal Palace in December, and has been out ever since.

Lavia only played just 32 minutes on his debut, and arrived Chelsea lacking match fitness.

He would then suffer a major ankle injury back in September which kept him out till December.

Lavia also missed two months of action during Southampton’s relegation battle with hamstring issues last season.

It’s such a sad news for the promising 20-year-old who also caught the attention of Liverpool.
