Chelsea defensive midfielder leaves club for EPL rival

ENGLAND – Chelsea defensive midfielder, Ethan Ampadu, has left Stamford Bridge to join Premier League rivals, Sheffield United.

Ampadu joins Sheffield United on a season-long loan for the 2020/21 season.

Chelsea stated this in a statement via its official website on Monday night.

“Ethan Ampadu will continue his development in the Premier League with Sheffield United after joining the Blades on a season-long loan,” Chelsea’s statement read.

“It will be a second temporary switch for Ampadu, who turns 20 next week.

“He spent last season gaining experience at RB Leipzig, where he was a team-mate of Timo Werner’s.

“He played seven games in Germany, including the full 90 minutes of a Champions League round of 16 wins at Tottenham on Leipzig’s path to the semi-finals of that competition.”

Ampadu joined Chelsea in 2017 from Exeter City.

He became the Blues’ eighth-youngest debutant in a Carabao Cup game in September 2017.
