Chelsea is pleased to confirm defender Kaiden Wilson has signed a new two-year contract, which includes a further one-year option.

The centre-back joined the Blues as an Under-14 after impressing at a grassroots tournament in Bristol. He progressed through the youth ranks at Cobham and made two appearances for our Under-18s during the 2021/22 campaign.

He established himself as a regular in the side’s defence the following season and this term made 18 starts as our Under-18s clinched the Under-18 Premier League South title.

Wilson has also made the step up to our Under-21s this season. He featured twice in Premier League two during the campaign in addition to starting our two play-off matches against Brighton and Hove Albion and Arsenal.

Congratulations, Kaiden!
