Chelsea Youngster Arrives At Sunderland

Chelsea Youngster Arrives At Sunderland

Chelsea youngster Jake Clarke-Salter has today made a loan move out to Sunderland.

The 20 year old defender comes out to the Stadium of Light on a deal that will expire at the end of the campaign and in doing so, he becomes Chris Coleman's first signing since he replaced Simon Grayson back in November.

The defender has been with Chelsea since 2006 but his single Premier League appearance came as a substitute in their game against Aston Villa in March 2016.

Last season he spent time with Bristol Rovers and was a part of the England side that won the Under 20 World Cup in South Korea.

Speaking to Sky Sports Coleman explained.

'Jake is a hugely talented young player who has jumped at the opportunity to come to this club and show people what he can do. You don't play for a club like Chelsea unless you have tremendous ability and I'm sure he will be able to demonstrate that for Sunderland. Jake is exactly the type of hungry young player I have spoken about and he has shown me just how keen he is to come to here and play in front of our supporters.'
