Chelsea have confirmed that young midfielder Ethan Ampadu has joined Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on a season-long loan.
Frank Lampard commented on the decision: “I tried to sign Ethan on loan at Derby last year so I’m a big fan, but with the minutes he played last year, in the interest of Ethan and of Chelsea, the idea he can play a lot of games somewhere could be good for him.
“I really wanted to work with Ethan this year. That’s a slight disappointment, but it’s to benefit of him. In midfield and defence we have a lot of quality, so each player is a case by case.”
