DONE DEAL: Chelsea FC sign promising striker

Chelsea football club have completed the signing of Finnish striker Aleksi Heino on a two-year scholarship contract following successful trial spell at the club in August.

The 16-year-old promising striker, who recently spent a week and half for his trial at Chelsea and another week at Wolfsburg has clearly impressed enough to be signed by the West London club.

While Aleksi Heino is still too young to play for the Chelsea first team, he will now play alongside compatriots Jimi Tauriainen and Lucas Bergstrom as well as Norwegian Bryan Fiabema and Swede Edwin Andersson at the club's youth set up.

The youngster plays primarily as a striker, and he will be one of many left-footed players in the current Chelsea academy ranks.

The young forward, who has represented Finland at the Under-15 level will aim to climb up through the ranks at Chelsea, and hopefully feature in the first-team later in the future.

That said, good luck to Aleksi Heino and may his upcoming journey at the West London club be an impressive one.
