After refusing to sign a new extended contract with Chelsea, midfielder Lewis Bate has joined Leeds United on a permanent deal.
The 18-year old has never played a senior match for Chelsea or for anyone in fact, but he is a highly rated young player with a massive future.
He clearly just didn’t see a fast route into the Chelsea first-team and decided on a different route.
As you can see below, Leeds United confirmed the transfer this Thursday morning…
