Chelsea sign Exeter teenager Ethan Ampadu, clubs in talks over fee

Ethan Ampadu trained with the senior Wales squad ahead of Euro 2016.

Chelsea have won the race to sign teenage Exeter defender Ethan Ampadu.

Ampadu, 16, who trained with the senior Wales squad ahead of Euro 2016, has signed a deal with the Premier League champions after deciding to leave Exeter, the League Two club announced.

Exeter will not receive a transfer fee as Ampadu had yet to sign scholarship forms at St James Park, but the Grecians are entitled to compensation for their academy product.

In a statement on their official website, the club said they hoped a fee could be agreed without the need to go to a tribunal.

Gab Marcotti evaluates Chelsea's summer plans, including attacking options and defensive target Antonio Rudiger.

Ampadu became Exeter's youngest debutant -- beating Cliff Bastin's long-standing record - when he played in last season's League Cup match against Brentford at the age of 15 years, 10 months and 26 days, and he went on to make 13 appearances for the first team.

Exeter manager Paul Tisdale said on his club's official website: "Everyone at Exeter City fully supports Ethan's decision to sign for Chelsea.

"He had many options available to him and has decided that Chelsea provides him with the best opportunity to develop the next step of his career. We wish him the very best of luck."
