Chelsea academy product Conor Clifford joins Leicester City

Michael Regan

Clifford was released by the club just over a month ago, and will join Leicester until the end of the season

At the close of the January transfer window, Chelsea released six U18 and U21 players who were out of contract in June and weren't going to be offered a new deal at the London club. Conor Clifford was one of the most accomplished of those six, having even received a callup for the Irish national team (he went unused in the game).

According to Sky Sports, Clifford has now found a new home in the Championship. Sky are reporting that he has agreed to a deal with Leicester City, a deal lasting until the end of the season. The club started the weekend in the promotion playoff places, sitting fifth.

I'm actually a bit pleased that Clifford opted for such an aggressive short term deal, as an impressive showing could certainly help his chances of getting a long term deal in the upper divisions of English football. Here's hoping it goes well for him, and that he sees plenty of time on the pitch.
