There have been so many talents that have been let go over the past few seasons by Chelsea as they were not good enough to keep hold – but Runham is a lad that the club have big hopes for.

He has been at the club since he was eight years old – he has developed into a very exciting talent and is certainly a lad that Pochettino may be able to give a chance in the coming seasons.

We are sure that he will get loaned out by the club as he needs to gain some much needed first-team experience – but this is massive news for the lad and his family and will give him the belief that he can make it at Stamford Bridge.
