Chelsea news: Club confirms the signing of the prolific centre back, Josh Grant

The England League one outfit, Bristol Rovers FC have confirmed the signing of former Chelsea FC prolific centre back, Josh Grant on their official club website.

The 21 year-old English central defender, Josh Grant have signed for Bristol Rovers upon the end of his contract with Chelsea FC. The English League 1 club have switched to bring in the ex-England Under-20 captain, Josh Grant as a free agent, coming in to strengthen Ben Garner’s squad.

Chelsea FC youth graduate Josh Grant’s contract with Chelsea FC came to an end earlier this summer and it has not taken him too long to move to a new team.

When speaking to the Bristol Rovers's official website upon the announcement, Josh Grant revealed the reasons behind his action to join the Ben Garner's side. He claimed that he is looking forward to working under the manager, Ben Garner, saying:“The plan Ben Garner had for me, as an individual player and for the team, that is what made to sign. I think he desires to step forward, he discovers where I’m at in my playing career and I think now is the perfect time for me to move on and progress as much as I can.

“Coming up via Chelsea FC, you’re advantaged and you’re lucky, but when you strike the real world you think ‘It’s appropriate time to set a name for myself without that the Blues tag now,’ and I think this is the normal place for me to begin that.”
