Chelsea have swooped for the nephew of West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady.

The Sun says Chelsea have beaten off a host of Premier League rivals to sign 15-year-old whizkid George Brady from AS Cannes.

Blues paid the French club £250,000 in compensation to land the 6ft 4in defender on a three-year deal.

Brady, who grew up in Monaco and initially came through their youth system, had Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Manchester City chasing him.

But Chelsea have been watching the teenager — nephew of West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady — for two years and swooped when it became clear that the competition to sign him was hotting up.
