DONE DEAL: Chelsea advisor Cech scouted Burton signing Sharman-Lowe

Chelsea have secured the signature of teenage shot stopper Teddy Sharman-Lowe.

The 17-year-old has arrived from Burton Albion in League One on a permanent transfer.

The England U19 international arrives after a recommendation from ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

The club legend is now Chelsea's technical and performance advisor.

"Teddy joined us as a first-year pro when he turned 17 and this is an amazing situation he has found himself in. When we were approached in the off-season, we arranged for Chelsea's Head of Recruitment to see him play and Petr Cech came to watch him as well," Brewers boss Jake Buxton said.

"We had a conversation with Teddy and his parents and said if he can stay with us and develop that would be great, and he's proved he's more than capable of being an important part of the goalkeeping mix here this season.

"He's a cracking player but he's also a smashing lad, his parents should be proud of how he is growing up."

Speaking to Burton's website, Sharman-Lowe said: "It's brilliant and it has all happened so fast. Burton have developed me so well and now it's another new beginning and, hopefully, I can develop further with Chelsea.

"I'm excited to be joining such a great club, especially as they are known for bringing on young players.

"It has all happened in a flash, from playing for the first team in pre-season, and then joining a top-four Premier League contender.

"I want to say a massive thank you to all the first team staff, Jake Buxton and the players and to Nigel Clough, Dan Robinson, Paul Reynolds, Sam Rose and all the Academy staff for all their help and support.

"I just want to continue training with that support, develop as a player, get a few games and see how it pans out."
