Chelsea academy graduate Marc Guehi believes leaving Chelsea for Crystal Palace during the summer transfer window was the right decision.

Guehi joined Crystal Palace for £18million and has made three Premier League starts for Crystal Palace already. He made just 2 first-team appearances for Chelsea during his time at the club.

“It wasn’t an easy decision for me to leave Chelsea,” Marc Guehi told Goal.

“I was at the club for so long – since I was seven years old. I am extremely grateful for everyone who has helped me get so far and it’s because of them that I’m here.

“I felt like it was the right decision for me to move to Palace. I wanted to play regular football at a high level in the Premier League and test myself to see how far I can go. I think I will really improve myself.

“So looking at it that way, I think it was the right decision. My mentality is to get the most out of myself.”
