Confirmed : Super Eagles-eligible midfielder joins Chelsea subject to medical

Through their official website, London giants Chelsea have confirmed the transfer of Super Eagles-eligible midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka from Premier League rivals Aston Villa.


Chukwuemeka has been given permission by the Villains to travel to London where he will discuss personal terms and undergo medical examinations ahead of penning a contract.

Chukwuemeka was courted by several European powerhouses including Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus.


The Anglo-Nigerian had just one year left on his existing contract with the Villains and refused penning a new deal due to concerns over his playing time.


The promising young midfielder started just two Premier League games for Aston Villa last season, whilst making a further ten appearances from the bench.


It is safe to say that Chukwuemeka's value has increased since he helped the Young Lions win the 2022 European U19 Championship with stellar performances which culminated in three goals and two assists to his name.


The 18-year-old leaves Villa having made sixteen first team appearances of which three were starts.
