Carny Chukwuemeka happily signs a permanent contract with Chelsea on a long-term deal. The young teenager was one of the stars that helped England in the Under-19 European Championship to the final glory.
Chukwuemeka scored a winning goal in the Finals against Israel which renders his recent arrival. The talented midfielder has been performing in every Young Lions match brilliantly, and he has almost 100% appearances in all games.
Additionally, He happens to earn a place in the UEFA’s Team of the Tournament following his continuous brilliant performance.
He started his youth career with Northampton Town before moving to Villa at the age of 12 and advancing to make his senior debut in the Premier League against Tottenham in May 2021.
A week later, he helped Villa to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the FA Youth Cup final, their first win in the competition in 19 years, and finished as the tournament’s top goal scorer. He was also named Academy Player of the Season and came off the bench in the Premier League season finale against Chelsea at Villa Park.
The 2021/22 campaign was a breakthrough one for the teenager as he made his first Premier League start in late August and then featured in a Carabao Cup tie at Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel’s side squeezed through on penalties.
In total, he made 14 appearances and became the youngest player to register a Premier League goal contribution for the club in December’s 2-0 win over Norwich City.
On completing his move to Stamford Bridge, Chukwuemeka said: ‘It’s been quite hectic but I couldn’t get Chelsea out of my head the last few days so I’m just happy and relieved that it’s all done.
‘I’m so excited and just can’t wait to get on the pitch, meet all the players, and try to win games and trophies with Chelsea.’
Todd Boehly, the chairman, said: ‘Carney is one of the most exciting young players in Europe so we are really looking forward to seeing him in action at Stamford Bridge.
We are delighted to be able to bring him to Chelsea and add such a talented young individual to our squad for the new season and beyond.’
Behdad Eghbali and José E. Feliciano, co-controlling owners, said: ‘We are building for both the now and the future so signing one of the hottest teenage talents in English football fits with both those aims.
Chelsea has shown that young potential can be fulfilled at this club and under our ownership, we are determined this will continue. We are looking forward to Carney thriving here.’
