John Terry Names 18-Year-Old Academy Left-Back Chelsea Need To Promote To First Team

Chelsea youth prospect Dylan Williams has been training with Thomas Tuchel’s first team after making a ‘big impression’ in the youth sides, as per Goal.com.

Williams, 18, plays as a left-back and he joined the Blues after breaking into Derby County’s first team, making six appearances in the Championship before Chelsea picked him up.

The left-back’s performance on the final day of the PL2 season reportedly impressed a few coaches at Cobham, including John Terry, who spoke to Dylan’s father.

“After his last Under-23s game at Cobham, which Chelsea won to stay up, I saw John Terry and just said hello to him again for the first time that day,” Dylan’s father said. “He stopped, walked over to me, shook my hand and told me how well he thought Dylan was doing.”

Hopefully, Williams keeps performing well – Goal.com add that he is of the Reece James mould, a good defender who loves to attack.
