Latest transfer news: Chelsea confirms Ghanaian star transfer

Chelsea have parted ways with the England-born Ghanaian Richard Nartey after his 12 years service for the club.

The 21-year-old Richard Nartey joined the Premiership giants Chelsea in 2007 as under-9 developmental player and went through the ranks up to Under-23 level.

The Ghanaian defender's contract with Chelsea has expired on 30 June and the club confirmed that his contract wouldn't be extended this summer.

Nartey was loaned to the League 1 club, Burton Albion this season and made a huge impact on the club's performance by making 25 appearances for the club this season. But his performance cannot earned him a place in Chelsea's first team with Cesar Azpilicueta and Reece James already cemented that position.

Therefore, his returns to Burton Albion as a free agent is possible this summer as the Burton's manager James Buxton is very keen to sign him permanently.

Nartey, who was born in London to a Ghanaian father and an English mother attended St. Paul's School where he was scouted by Chelsea's officials during inter- schools tournament in 2007.
