 Talented Defender Who Models His Game After Real Madrid's Marcelo Happy To Sign New Chelsea Deal
Nigerian fullback Derrick Abu has expressed his happiness after signing a new deal with Premier League giants Chelsea, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

On Thursday, Chelsea announced their new intake of Academy scholars for the 2020-2021 season, with Abu and two other promising Nigerian teenagers - goalkeepers Prince Adegoke and Kelechi Chibueze - making the cut.

The defender joined The Blues at U11 level after he was spotted by a Chelsea scout playing for local club Coezer FC at a tournament in Spain.

Abu models his game after Real Madrid's Marcelo, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold and former Barcelona star Dani Alves.

He was accompanied to the signing ceremony held at Cobham earlier this week by his mother and sister.

Writing on Instagram, Abu said : "Happy to have signed my first contract for @chelseafc 🔵📝 #cfc"

The 2003-born Abu has been capped by England at U17 level but is eligible to represent Nigeria without applying for a change of nationality.
