Chelsea move for young gun Paul Ibahadon after Aston Villa move collapse

Chelsea are moving for whizkid Paul Ibahadon.

The Birmingham Mail reports that Ibahadon, 15, was due to sign for Aston Villa earlier this season, but that fell through.

All Nigeria Soccer claim that international clearance issues prevented it happening then.

But now Chelsea are set to show their hand, and have reportedly invited him to the academy for a trial.

Ibahadon was born in Italy and was part of the Atalanta academy before a family move to the UK.

He is described as "ball-playing central defender who is composed, strong and quick, Ibahadon can also be utilized as a holding midfielder".
