Midfielder Leo Castledine has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with CHELSEA, it has been revealed

Castledine made his first appearances for our Under-18s while a schoolboy in 2020/21, before captaining the side in a number of games and hitting double figures for goals the following season.

He progressed to the Under-21s in 2022/23 and has featured regularly for Mark Robinson’s side, and his performances over the past few seasons has meant that the club have made the decision to hand him a new contract.

Jim Fraser, Head of youth development and recruitment, said: ‘We are delighted Leo has committed his future to the club and look forward to seeing him continue his development here.

‘He has been an ever-present at Under-21 level this season, so we hope to see him keep progressing at CHELSEA in the years ahead.’

We have been splashing the cash on the last few windows on talents that will come to the club and develop – forgetting about the fact there is so many promising young players already at the club that have cost nothing.

Castledine is a lad that many fans have been keeping a close eye on over the past few years, as he has been developing very nicely, it is just a shame that he may never get the chance to prove himself in that first-team with all the players that get signed.
