Blues academy coach Dermot Drummy admits decisions on more young players still need to be made.

He explained to chelseafc.com: "Anton Rodgers was a fantastic scholar and he decided to leave during the season when he got our decision which you understand, there is an emotion there, but he has secured a contract with Brighton, as has Ben Sampayo. Ben elected to stay with us on the Youth Cup run and was a fantastic scholar.

"We hope their careers take off. Bobby Devyne as we speak is listening to a number of clubs."
