Jude Sunsop-Bell will leave Chelsea this month
Chelsea academy striker Jude Sunsop-Bell is set to leave the club this month.
Athletic it was reported in November that the highly-rated forward, who turns 19 next week, was considering his future at Chelsea, with this likely to be his last season at Stamford Bridge.
Sunsap-Bella’s current deal expires in the summer, but talks over an extension stalled last January as he began to consider his future. Now the teenager has decided to postpone his departure.
Clubs in the Premier League and elsewhere in Europe are monitoring the situation and are ready to take advantage of Soonsup-Bell’s availability. The terms of his departure will have to be discussed between Chelsea and his next team, but that won’t be a problem.
The teenager made his Chelsea debut under previous manager Thomas Tuchel just 13 months ago and has been touted as a top prospect in the club’s academy for some time.
For example, during the 2019-2020 campaign, he scored 26 goals in all competitions for Chelsea’s various youth teams in just 17 appearances. In February 2021, he became the first Chelsea player in 59 years to score four goals in an FA Youth Cup match.
Despite playing just 122 minutes for the under-21 side in Premier League 2 this season, he still managed two goals and an assist.
One of the reasons for Sunsop-Bella’s departure after seven enjoyable years at Chelsea is that he is considering a path to the first team and that he would benefit from a move elsewhere.
