Star sends message to fans after OFFICIALLY completing his move to Chelsea – summer spree begins

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of exciting young stopper Eddie Beach from Premier League rivals Southampton

The 18-year-old was part of Saints’ Premier League South U18 title-winning team – and is a player that the clubs coaches think very highly of – and had hoped to be part of the first team side in the coming seasons

But with Southampton understood to be close to sealing a deal to sign Republic of Ireland international Gavin Bazunu from Manchester City – and experienced goalkeeper Willy Caballero reportedly agreeing a new one-year deal with the club – his chances of getting into that first-team side have dimmed

That allowed Chelsea to swoop in and offer him a stunning move to Chelsea – where he will get to work with some of the best coaches in the Premier League and possibly work his way up to playing with some of the best players in world football

Jim Fraser, Chelsea’s assistant head of youth development and head of youth recruitment, told the club’s website: “We are very pleased to bring Eddie to the club

“He is a talented goalkeeper with good potential and will join our development squad for the coming season.”

In a post on his Instagram which finished with red and white emojis, the former New Forest Football Academy player said: “Just want to say a massive thanks to @southamptonfc for the past 3 and a half years.

Particularly all the staff, teammates and coaches who have made it such a memorable experience.

“It’s been an amazing journey and I have learnt so much from everyone within the club. Now its time to look at the next chapter of my career. Good luck boys!”

It could also be a massive mistake as he will have a very hard time of it trying to break into that Chelsea first-team – so many young talents have been signed – then loaned out and then sold because they werent good enough

He may never actually break into that Chelsea first-team in the coming seasons – and may just be sent out on loan – like many others

But as we said – he must be excited about the move and will hope that his dream will one day come true
