Chelsea coach Eddie Newton is leaving the Blues for Trabzonspor.

The Daily Mail says Newton has agreed to join Trabzonspor as assistant manager.

He leaves his role within the Blues' coaching staff to link up once again with former Chelsea men John Obi Mikel and Daniel Sturridge, acting as Huseyin Cimsir's assistant.

A Chelsea youth product himself, former Blues midfielder Newton was the loan player technical coach between 2016 and 2019 - checking in with stars such as Tammy Abraham, Andreas Christensen and Reece James as they developed away from West London side.
