Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu has signed for German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan for the new season.

His loan deal to RB Leipzig was confirmed earlier on Monday.

The 18-year-old Chelsea player has been handed the number 26 jersey at the German club.

Ethan Ampadu was promoted to the first team at Chelsea in 2016 and he has made 12 appearances in all competitions since then.

The young Welsh international signed a new contract at Chelsea in September 2018.

While Maurizio Sarri was the Chelsea manager last season, he made just three appearances in all competitions for the west Londoners.

He would be hoping to continue his football education in Germany with RB Leipzig who will play in the Champions League.

RB Leipzig returned to the Champions League after they finished third on the German Bundesliga table last season behind Borussia Dortmund and champions Bayern Munich.

It would be their second Champions League campaign in three seasons.

In addition, RB Leipzig also reached the German Cup final before they were thrashed 3-0 by eventual winners Bayern Munich.

On Ethan Ampadu, new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed that he tried to sign him on loan while he was the Derby County manager during the last campaign.

Lampard stressed the need for Ampadu to go out on loan.
