Chelsea Declare Complete Signing Of Omari Kellyman

Chelsea announced the signing of 18-year-old teenage midfielder Omari Kellyman from Aston Villa in a deal worth up to £19 million on Saturday.

Kellyman has played six times for Villa’s first team since joining the Birmingham club’s youth academy from Derby County in 2022. He also represents England at the youth level.

“It’s a massive club with an amazing history, so it is great to join… I want to be successful in the Chelsea shirt, win games, and hopefully lift trophies,” Kellyman said.

“Hopefully, I can become one of the faces on the side of the stadium. I want to become a big player for this club.”

The teenager made his professional debut for Villa in August 2023, showcasing his talent in the 3-0 victory against Hibernian in the Europa Conference League.

This signing represents Chelsea’s second deal with Villa this week, following Dutch defender Ian Maatsen’s move from Stamford Bridge to Villa Park for a reported fee of £37.5 million on Friday.
