Twelve-year-old rejects Chelsea move

Swindon's twelve-year-old midfielder Jordan Young has rejected the chance to join Chelsea, the League Two club have confirmed.

Young, one of Swindon's most promising players, has been the focus of attention of several bigger clubs but it was the Blues who made the first overtures.

However, he has opted to remain with the Robins and continue his development, to the delight of the Wiltshire outfit.

Jeremy Newton, director of Swindon's Centre of Excellence, told the club's official website: ''We are delighted with the way Jordan is progressing, like so many of our other players within the Centre of Excellence and the STFC Youth Department.

''A lot of hard work goes on, not just at our club, but in the majority of Football League clubs as we coach and develop youngsters at all ages.

''So to have interest shown in this emerging talent by Premier league clubs and for them to continue monitoring players is testament to the good work that is going on.

''Jordan remains contracted to the club until 2015 and he is one of a number of players who we have high hopes for and have secured for the future.''
