A slew of Chelsea youngsters sign new contracts

I don't think anyone was particularly worried about Charly Musonda or Jeremie Boga going anywhere after impressive years with the youth team, but just in case you were, good news:

and then...

My mother always told me that if all I had to say about Charly Musonda's haircut is that it makes him look like some sort of bizarre crested dinosaur, I shouldn't say anything at all; so I won't mention Charly Musonda's haircut. Instead, I'll just say that these aren't yet full senior contracts. Both Boga and Musonda are currently 16, so they're getting first-year scholar deals, which means they're signed up for the next two years (so don't worry about Chelsea not signing them longer-term).

A few other Blues were also signed to first-year scholar contracts, but Musonda and Boga are the big names, and most of the rest of them haven't been released yet anyway. Good to see the academy chugging right along.

UPDATE: The full list of new first-year scholars includes George Brady, Ola Aina, Kasey Palmer, Brad Collins, and Charlie Colkett. All five are English, if such designations matter to you. Presumably, Connor Hunte and Josimar Quintero will also be joining this class of scholars.

Congratulations to them all!
