Nigerian stars, Kelechi Chibueze, Prince Adegoke as well as defender Derick Abu, have signed deals with Chelsea
Chelsea has announced their new intake of academy scholars, with the three Nigerian starlets making the cut.
Kelechi Chibueze and Prince Adegoke are both goalkeepers while Derick Abu is a defender.
They all have been offered scholarships for the 2020/2021 season.
The three Nigerians signed their contracts in a socially-distanced signing session at Cobham.
“All players in their Under-17 year are required to start the season on a scholarship agreement before they are permitted to sign a first professional football contract on or after their 17th birthday,” part of the statement read.

Only Adegoke, 16, has been officially invited to train with the Golden Eaglet.
However, he could not travel because of the club and educational commitments.
Abu, Adegoke and Chibueze have been promoted to Chelsea under-18 squad for the 2020/2021 campaign.
