Chelsea football club has made a move for young Swedish player, Joseph Colley who plays for FC Brommapoijkarna in the Swedish league. The player had earlier been involved in a Chelsea transfer plans back in December 2013 while he was just 14, showing his quality and potentials even at a younger age. But the Blues allowed him continue at Stockholm, hoping he would develop and come more of age. Now he has, and a move is certain, as he will be joining Chelsea once the transfer window opens on July 1.
There are reports that the tall 16 year-old has already bade his teammates goodbye, and is ready to make that big move to the EPL Champions. The central back is capable of playing as right back and can also be deployed as a defensive midfielder. Manchester United were also reported to have had interest in the youngster, but failed to keep track of him, losing the gem to Chelsea who are notorious for snatching up young players in a high rate. As things are currently, it is least likely that the agile Colley, who is of African descent will immediately join the first team. A move to the Chelsea academy, that also boasts of quality teenagers, is the most likely option on the cards.
It is also possible that he gets loaned out after a season with the youth team or immediately, depending on the final decision of the management. If a loan works out, the Netherlands league will likely be Colleys’ next stop. He will be joining Chelsea’s feeders team, Vitesse. The Eredivisie side boasts of a couple of Chelsea’s loanees, with Burkina Faso’s Bertrand Traore the most successful during last season. The working relationship between Chelsea and the club has yielded positive results, with most of the loanees from Chelsea developing into better players who get fit to earn a shirt in the Chelsea’s first team, Joseph Colley will probably join the list if he gets loaned to Vitesse.
