Premier League: Chelsea sign new player


Chelsea have beaten Tottenham Hotspur to the signing of Crewe Alexandra youngster, George Nunn.

The striker rejected a deal to stay with the League Two side.

Nunn, 16, had attracted interest from the Premier League’s elite after some promising performances in Crewe’s Under-16 side.

Chelsea officials have now snapped up the player.

Nunn scored more than 20 goals before being promoted to the U18 team and he scored a double from the bench on his debut for that outfit.

The 16-year-old has, however, not featured for Crewe’s first team.

Chelsea paid Crewe around £300,000 for the youngster.

The Sun, UK, reports that Nunn will continue his development at the Stamford Bridge.

Spurs had been sniffing around the forward but he snubbed a move to White Hart Lane.
