Chelsea linked with Wolves defender

Wolves defender Max Kilman is the latest player linked with a  summer move to Chelsea.

With the potential need to replace three of their current experienced defenders, the Club World Champion are potentially in the market for several new recruits, and Kilman, who has been in fine form for Wolves this season, now finds himself in the spotlight.

The 24-year old was actually born in Chelsea and grew up a fan of the club, but made his way into the game via non-league football, joining Wolves from Maidenhead United in the summer of 2018.

He began with their under-23 side, but then he made his first-team debut in May 2019, he became the first player since Chris Smalling to make the transition from non-League to Premier League football with no intervening stages.

He attempted to switch his international allegiance to Ukraine, the country of his mother last year, but FIFA rejected that application because he had played for England at international futsal level.
