Norwich fight off Chelsea interest to keep Alex Matos

Norwich City have tied down talented youngster Alex Matos.

The teenager has been rewarded with his first professional contract after impressing for the U18s last season.

Chelsea were reportedly interested in signing the English attacker.

Speaking to the club's website, the youngster outlined his hopes for the future as he continues his development at Colney.

"I'm very delighted to have signed my first contract at this club," he said. I've been here for quite a long time, about six years, and I want to take the next step in my football journey.

"I'm very happy to sign my pro deal so quickly because it shows that I'm progressing through the ranks.

"I'm a forward who can play anywhere in the front line. My pace is probably my best attribute, getting into the box and creating chances. It's a big part of my game."
