Newcastle have signed former Chelsea midfielder Kyle Scott.

The 21 year old midfielder left Chelsea this summer after refusing to extend his Chelsea contract. His Chelsea contract expired this summer and he opted against signing a new deal due to lack of first team opportunities at Chelsea.

Scott made just one appearance for Chelsea, an FA Cup win over Hull City in February 2018.

Scott spent last season on loan at Dutch second-tier side Telstar, scoring twice in 14 league appearances.

The 21 year old midfielder was highly rated at Chelsea with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte claiming he was a future Chelsea star.

Speaking after completing his move to Newcastle, Scott said: “I’m really excited. Newcastle is a massive club with massive history, but for young kids there is an opportunity – you see that with (Sean) Longstaff and what he did last year, and it’s a good opportunity for me.

“Newcastle are in the Premier League, and a massive club. You look at the kind of players that have come through here and how much opportunity they have got, and I feel like at this place they do give it as long as you’re working hard and playing well.”
