Young Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo has left the club on a temporary deal that covers the new season.

Ike Ugbo has joined Dutch Eerste Divisie club Roda JC on loan for the 2019/20 season.

Roda JC is a second-tier club in the Netherlands and they finished in 13th position at the end of last season.

Ike Ugbo was presented as a new signing at Roda JC on Saturday.

He was introduced to the Roda JC fans during their Fan Day earlier this weekend.

The 20-year-old has previously spent loan periods at English clubs like MK Dons, Barnsley, and Scunthorpe.

It was clear that Ike Ugbo will be farmed out on loan for the umpteenth time after he was absent from the list of players confirmed for the new season accompanied with their shirt numbers.

Ike Ugbo won’t be a part of the new Chelsea dispensation of Frank Lampard for the short-term at least.

The Nigerian striker will be hoping to mastermind promotion to the Dutch Eredivisie for his new club.

Frank Lampard was appointed the Chelsea manager this summer having established himself as a club legend during his playing career.

The 41-year-old spent 13 years as a player at Stamford Bridge between 2001 and 2014.
