Ethan Ampadu will spend the coming season on loan at Sheffield United.
The 19-year old Chelsea player, who can play in either central defence or as a defensive midfielder, became the third player to join the Blades earlier this week, after they also wrapped-up deals for the Derby County full-back pairing of Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe.
Welsh international Ampadu spent last season on loan as well in Germany with RB Leipzig. However, he struggled for game time with the Bundesliga side, making just 7 appearances for them in all competitions.
Signed from Exeter City as 16-year old, Ampadu has made a handful of appearances for Chelsea at senior level, and with little chance of first-team opportunities in the coming campaign, it is helped that a spell with United will help with his development.
Ampadu has been in action for wales in the past few days, featuring in their two Nations Cup wins over Finland and Bulgaria.
