George Saville

Chelsea
Born on 1 June 1993 in Camberley, Surrey, Saville is a midfielder who joined the Chelsea Academy from Reading at Under 13 age group, George is in his fourth full-time year having become a scholar in July 2009. He turned professional in July 2010.

He played 20 youth team matches in 2009/10 and was used as a sub in the FA Youth Cup campaign that season which ended with the trophy captured.

In 2010/11 he was the fourth highest appearance maker in the youth team and his improvement was rewarded with 10 reserve appearances, seven from the bench. He was in the starting 11 for the play-off final against Blackburn that Chelsea won to be crowned national reserve league champions.

A tall, competitive left-footer who reads the game very well and is good in possession, George played left-back as a schoolboy but can now fill in at centre-back. His older brother Jack is a former Chelsea youth team defender.

George signed a new three-and-a-half year contract in January 2012, committing himself to Chelsea until 2015.

The youngster made 17 appearances for the reserves during the 2011/12 season, and was part of a select group of younger players chosen to train with the first team towards the end of the season.

He was also a member of the squad which Dermot Drummy took to represent the club in the Hong Kong Sevens tournament at the end of the season, and went on the tour of the US with Roberto Di Matteo and the first team squad.

In the newly restructured Under-21s' league, George secured our Under-21s a point in the game against Crystal Palace when he scored both goals in a 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park.

At the end of February 2013, it was announced that Saville would join Millwall on loan until 4 May. He made two starts and one sub appearance for the Championship side.

He spent the first half of the current campaign on loan at Brentford, impressing in midfield as the Bees picked up 37 points from a possible 39.

Saville's displays ensured that, in January, a deal was agreed for him to remain with the League One club until the end of the season.
