Blackman loan switch to Boro

Jamal Blackman has joined Middlesbrough on loan until January. 

The 20-year-old goalkeeper joined Chelsea as an Under-13 and was an ever-present during our triumphant FA Youth Cup campaign in 2011/12. 

He played in both the semi-final and final of our Under-21 Premier League play-off success last season, making two decisive saves in the penalty shoot-out victory against Manchester City in the first of those games. 

Blackman signed a new five-contract at Stamford Bridge in June and was called up to the England Under-21 squad for the first time on Friday, having represented his country at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-19 level. 

We wish Jamal all the best on Teesside. You will be able to keep abreast of his progress here on the official Chelsea website and there is more information on him in his profile.
