OFFICIAL: Soton sign Chelsea academy starlet Dynel Simeu

Southampton have completed the signing of Chelsea academy starlet Dynel Simeu. 

Simeu was offered a new contract at Chelsea but rejected it and opted to make a return to Sotonb. The youngster will continue his career with Southampton, after being at Chelsea since the Under-13 level.

The 21-year-old has previously spoken on his admiration for Southampton and is happy to be reuniting with his boyhood team.

"I came from a Sunday league team in Southampton and with my background, I didn’t know many footballers and didn’t even know how Chelsea Academy worked, I thought playing here was unrealistic,” he told the club's in-house media channel earlier this year," he told Football. London last year. 

"I admired Portsmouth and Southampton because that’s all I knew, I always dreamed of becoming a footballer but my family and I never thought it was realistic, then when I got the chance everything happened quickly and it was unbelievable."
