First loan for Wakefield as three depart

Charlie Wakefield has today completed a maiden loan move and joined Stevenage for the 2017/18 season.

The 19-year-old links up with the League Two side following their unbeaten start to the campaign. Wakefield has previously helped our younger sides to success in the 2015/16 FA Youth Cup and in back-to-back UEFA Youth League triumphs.

The speedy winger recently signed a new contract at Chelsea committing him to the club until 2019.

Additionally, Under-18 midfielder George McEachran has signed a contract keeping him with Chelsea until 2019.

Leaving Chelsea permanently today are defenders Kyle Jameson, who has signed for West Bromwich Albion, and Cristian Cuevas, who has joined Dutch club FC Twente. Academy forward Malakai Hinckson-Mars has rejoined Barnet.

We wish them the best for the future.
