Chelsea wonderkid Ethan Ampadu joins Sheffield United on loan

Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu has joined Sheffield United on a season-long loan, the club has confirmed.

The 19-year-old spent last season on loan at RB Leipzig, where he played seven games including the full 90 minutes of a Champions League round of 16 win at Tottenham. 

The teenager joined Chelsea from Exeter City in 2017 and became the Blues' eighth-youngest debutant in a Carabao Cup game that September.

In total, Ampadu has made 12 appearances in the Blue shirt, seven of them starts. 

He has also been a regular in the Wales national team and played in defense the last two matches as Ryan Giggs recorded back-to-back 1-0 victories.
