Chelsea have swooped to sensationally agree a transfer with Aston Villa for contract rebel Carney Chukwuemeka.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a dream summer, starring for England Under-19s in their European Championship success and scoring twice in the final against Israel.

Chukwuemeka only had a year left on his contract at Villa Park and 90min understands he had rejected Villa's renewal attempts to this point. The player was subsequently left out of the Villans' pre-season tour to Australia.
