YOUTH TEAM SKIPPER MOVES ON

Academy defender Jonathan Muleba has today (Thursday) joined Championship side AFC Bournemouth.

Muleba, 18, captained the youth team in each of his 15 league appearances this season, while also figuring in both our FA Youth Cup games to date. He played 22 times as a first-year scholar last season, while previously appearing twice for the Under-18 side when still a schoolboy.

Chelsea Football Club wishes Jonathan well for his future with the Cherries and thanks him for his contribution while here.
