Another Nigerian star quits Chelsea

Chelsea Academy striker  Ike Ugbo has joined Championship club Barnsley on loan for the 2017/18 season as confirmed by the Stamford Bridge side.

Ugbo was our top scorer in the development squad last season, and his 10 goals in the FA Youth Cup helped us win the trophy for the fourth consecutive year.

The 18-year old star was part of the success in the previous campaign and helped our Under-19s win back-to-back UEFA Youth League titles in 2015 and 2016.

An England youth international, Ugbo was part of the squad that retained the Toulon Tournament trophy this summer and will join the Championship side for his first experience of senior football.
