Watford sign highly-rated Chelsea defender Nathaniel Chalobah on loan
Watford have signed Chelsea’s rising star Nathaniel Chalobah on loan until January 2.
Chalobah is just 17 years old but has already been an unused substitute for Chelsea’s first team, captained the victorious FA Youth Cup side, and also the Reserves, on several occasions last season.
He signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea in January and travelled with the first team for the Champions League final victory in May.
Chalobah made his England Under-17 debut at just 14 and is currently an England Under-19 international.
The England website describes him as “Tall, athletic and comfortable in possession. The Chelsea youngster is a calm and composed player in either midfield or defence, both quick in the tackle and also able to play the ball sharply and accurately across the pitch.”
