Former World Player of the Year George Weah says his son Timothy is trialling with Chelsea.

Weah had a short stint with the Blues during his career.

He told talkSPORT: "He is talented. We just wanted to give him the opportunity and we also want him to enjoy the game he has passion for so I brought him to Chelsea just for a trial and for a different experience.

"When I left London, I kept ties with Chelsea and when my son wanted to come to England to play, the first person I called was my daddy, Gary Staker [the club's liaison officer].

"Gary made it happen and Timothy is enjoying it. He has started training already and he is happy."
