Chelsea Set to Complete Richards Signing Later This Year
The London side have shown a lot of desire to sign quality young talents under their new ownership. They signed Brazilian youngster Andrey Santos in January and even loaned him out afterwards. The Blues have an ambitious future plan and aim to be determined to build a super-team for the future.
It has been reported that the 17-year-old even had a trial at Newcastle United, but opted to join their Premier League rival instead.
What is more surprising is that Richards said after his Newcastle trial that he’s expecting to join the club. He said after the trial: “All I can say is I think did well and I was able to be seen by all the coaches. I am grateful for the opportunity and I believe it could be a good fit. I know they are a very ambitious club and want to be playing in the Champions League. I am expecting to hear positively from the club.”

Who is Dujuan Richards?
Born in November 2005 – Richards has been making a lot of fans for himself in Jamaica. He’s excelled and impressed with his goal-scoring heroics as well as his ability on the ball.
Richards won five awards at the ISSA schoolboy football awards and was good enough to earn a trial at a Premier League club like Newcastle. The 17-year-old is naturally a centre-forward, who can also operate on either wing and attended the Magpies’ Premier League game against West Ham United last month too.
He has trained with the Jamaican national football team, and even scored a hattrick for Kingston College in their 3-0 win over Calabar in the Digicel Manning Cup game last year. After that, Kingston College coach Raymond Watson hailed him as a “great player” – who is now poised to get a big move to England and take his shot at breaking into the Chelsea first team after November.
