Chelsea have on their official website announced a new deal for talented striker George Nunn.

George Nunn has just clocked 17 years of age on November 23 and it was a special way to mark his birthday by signing a new deal with the West London side.

The left-sided attacking youngster only joined the Blues in March earlier this year from EFL League Two side Crewe Alexandra.

George Nunn was quick to make an impact when he scored on his U18 Premier League debut for the Blues in their 3-1 win against Southampton on the opening game of the season.

Although, he has not been capped for the England national youth team but he has been able to see three UEFA Youth League games for the West London side.

However, the club will continue to monitor his progress and will hope he is able to develop to gain promotion into the U23 team and later the first team having seen lots of prospects in him at the young age.

Meanwhile, the Blues have continued to invest in youth players so as to be able to guarantee their future but the system of play by Italian manager Maurizio Sarri has not been able to create room for more players in the first team knowing that he has made use of just 14 players across all competitions this season.

Timothy Aiyeku is a Mass Communication graduate from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He is a sports, everything football analyst.
