Kyle Scott was born 17 years ago, on the 22nd of December in Bath, England.  Happy Birthday, Kyle!

As has been Chelsea's style for some time now, we've duly rewarded our newest 17-year-old with his first professional deal.  Happy Even Happier Birthday+1, Kyle!

The attacking midfielder broke into the Chelsea U18s as a 15-year-old last season and has been a regular for Joe Edwards this season.  He even has a couple appearances in the UEFA Youth League (U19)!  He's been with the Blues since before age 10.

Scott has dual US-UK citizenship (his mother and grandparents are from the Chicago area) and he's also eligible for the Republic of Ireland and even Italy.  But lately he's been part of the USA under-18 setup, regularly participating in tournaments and training camps for the Stars and Stripes.  Move over Freddy Adu, there's a new sheriff in town.  U-S-A!  U-S-A!  U-S-A!

Congrats, Kyle!
