Malo Gusto believes his pace and directness from full-back will be a huge asset to this Chelsea side in the coming years.

The 19-year-old arrived at our Cobham training base over the weekend before signing on the dotted line and immediately spoke of his overriding pride at joining the Blues.

He will be loaned straight back out to Lyon in France before returning in the summer.

Gusto has described what qualities he can offer on the right-hand side of defence.

‘I play right-back, I'm a fast player, crosser and box-to-box defender,’ Malo said. ‘I like the city. I am really, really happy to come here.

‘I chose Chelsea because it's a very big club and I like the project. Very happy to be here, so thank you for your messages. See you soon!’
