Chelsea has completed the signing of Jimmy-Jay Morgan from Southampton ahead of London derby game

The forward joins our young Blues in impressive form, with six goals and five assists in 13 appearances for the Saints’ youth team across various competitions.

Morgan, 17, trained frequently with the Southampton men’s first team and was selected on the bench for some cup games but did not make a senior appearance.

He joins our Academy as an England Under-17s regular, playing a big part in the team’s progression from the group stages of the European Under-17 Championship qualifiers.

Head of youth development and recruitment Jim Fraser said: ‘In signing Jimmy-Jay we have added a player with good potential to our Academy squads. His ability marks him out as an exciting striker and we are delighted he has chosen Chelsea for this next, important stage of his development.’
