Bertrand joins Southampton on loan

Ryan Bertrand has today completed a loan move to Southampton until the end of the season.

Bertrand, a Chelsea Academy product, made his Chelsea debut in April 2011 and just over a year later lifted the Champions League on his first European outing for the club. He remains the only player ever to make his European bow in the final of the competition.

The 24-year-old left-back has played 57 times for our first team and has gained two England caps.

He made three appearances for the Blues in the first half of the 2013/14 campaign before joining Aston Villa on loan in January, where he featured 16 times.

We wish Ryan well for the rest of the season and you can keep up with his progress here on the official Chelsea website.
