Chelsea are set to complete a deal to sign young striker Jayden Wareham from National League side Woking.

The 17 year old striker has been on trial at Chelsea for a month and has seemingly won a deal to sign for the Blues.

Woking boss Alan Dowson confirmed on Friday morning that Chelsea are close to signing the striker.

“Yeah I believe things are getting done,” he told the Woking YouTube channel.

“I don’t think they want to publicise it massively but I believe everything’s in order, it just needs clearance from the Premier League and all that.

“I don’t think there’s any problems with it, I think everything will be getting done and good luck to the lad. Whatever club he goes to, it should get done.

“Every day we think it’s getting done, today whatever, we can’t really say the name but I think everybody will know anyway to be honest.

“But the bottom line is good luck to the kid, I hope he does well, I hope he does very good. It will be good for him, I think he’s got a couple of years to kick on. Fair play to the lad.

“It’s done I think but I think when you go there you’ve just got to get permission off the Premier League and all that. That’s the only snag and I think everything else is done.”
