Ugbo leaves Chelsea for Belgian side Genk

Chelsea have confirmed the departure of Ike Ugbo, who has signed a permanent deal with Belgian outfit Genk. 

The highly-rated striker has been with the Blues since Under-10s level and now returns to the Belgian top flight, where he enjoyed a successful loan last season, scoring 17 goals in 34 games for Cercle Brugge.

Ugbo made his Under-18s debut in 2014/15, and went on to become a regular for the Academy side. 

He was part of the team that won back-to-back FA Youth Cup titles, scoring 10 times en route to lifting the trophy in 2016/17.

He joins the Belgian side that finished second last season, meaning they will be playing in the Europa League
