Academy defender Levi Colwill is to play on loan at Huddersfield Town next season having signed a new four-year contract with Chelsea.

The 18-year-old, who has been at Chelsea since Under-9s, is a central defender who can play in wider positions on the left and was a mainstay of our development squad’s campaign in 2020/21.

He was the third-highest appearance maker at that level with 21 appearances, three of them against senior opposition in the EFL Trophy. Still eligible for the youth team, Colwill played four games for the Under-18s, and is also an England Under-17 international.

Huddersfield, who finished 20th in the Championship last season, are managed by former Leeds coach Carlos Corberan.
