Nottingham Forest have signed Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah on loan until 15 January.The 18 year old will be available for Saturday’s trip to Doncaster after agreeing the formalities of his move this evening.
The England Under 21 international enhanced his reputation in the game with a successful loan spell at Watford last season. After extending his initial stay, Chalobah finished the season with five goals and was in the starting line-up for Watford’s playoff final defeat to Crystal Palace.
Sierra Leone-born, Chalobah has captained England at various youth levels and in February pipped Derby’s Will Hughes to England’s FA Youth Player of the Year award.
Yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea, Chalobah, a midfielder with plenty to offer at both ends of the pitch and a penchant for spectacular goals, will be hoping to impress Jose Mourinho with some impressive performances in a Reds shirt.
