Carney Chukwuemeka's first words after completing £20m Chelsea transfer from Aston Villa


Chelsea have completed the signing of 18-year-old Carney Chukwuemeka on a six-year deal from Aston Villa.

The England Under-19s midfielder joins Gabriel Slonina in signing for Chelsea as a teenager this summer and has already expressed his ambitions as a Blues player.

He will immediately go into Thomas Tuchel's first team plans for the upcoming season as he looks to cement a long-term future at the club.

Speaking in his first interview as a Chelsea player , Chukwuemeka said: "To hear myself say I play for Chelsea Football Club means the world to me. I've been a fan of Chelsea since I was young.

Playing football as a young kid was more about just loving and enjoying kicking a ball around, every young footballer dreams of playing for a big club and representing the club that they've supported so to put the badge on for the first time today is honestly an amazing feeling.

"I feel like I just want to bring myself, try and be unique and be a player for Chelsea that has never been seen before at this football club.

"I've already imagined walking out at Stamford Bridge, I can't till for the day it happens, people should expect me to be 100% in all I do, give my all for the club because that's what I'm going to do. 

"It’s been quite hectic but I couldn’t get Chelsea out of my head the last few days so I’m just happy and relieved that it’s all done. I’m so excited and just can’t wait to get on the pitch, meet all the players and try to win games and trophies with Chelsea."
