Chelsea have buy-back option for right-back

It has been revealed that Chelsea have inserted a buy-back clause in the deal that took right-back Tino Livramento to Southampton in the summer.

 A product of the Chelsea academy system, who has represented England at every age level up top under-21s, he was allowed to join the Saints during the last transfer window, with his prospects of breaking into the first-team at Stamford Bridge remote.

He has though gone on to play in all Southampton’s Premier League campaign so far this season, and won the penalty that allowed his side to equalise against his old club on Saturday, although two late goals spoiled his homecoming.

Already the £5 million that Southampton paid for him is starting to look a bargain, but at least Chelsea do have the fall-back of the buy back option, although that its set at £40 million, a potentially steep increase for the 19-year old.
