Chelsea new signing Leo Castledine has compared himself to Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

“Moving from defence to midfield was a very gradual process for me,” Leo told BBC.

“It took about two seasons. I was a tough-tackling centre-back at the start of my U13 season and now, towards the end of U15 season, I am a centre midfielder and sometimes play as a number 10.”

He also described himself as “an all-action goal-scoring midfielder who drives well with the ball”.

“I dribble and create chances just like Grealish,” he said. Castledine also says he is a very similar player to Mount.

On Wednesday, he completed a transfer from Wimbledon to Chelsea, after eight years at his former club.
