- Teddy Sharman-Lowe thanked Burton Albion for nurturing and growing his career in football
- He, however, will spend next season with the League One club on loan
- The youngster recently earned a call-up to the England Under-17 team
Chelsea have sealed the signing of promising goalkeeper Teddy Sharman-Lowe from Burton Albion.
The signing of Sharman-Lowe came just days after the Blues confirmed the arrival of Kai Havertz.
Havertz, who had previously been linked to Liverpool snubbed the Premier League champions to link up with Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge in a record fee.
The move saw him become Lampard's fifth major signing of the window, joining the likes of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech who had joined in previous weeks.
And just when everyone thought the Blues had closed their summer business, the west London club has snapped up Sharman-Lowe from lower tier side Burton.
However, the England Under-17 will not be challenging Kepa Arrizabalaga for the No.1 role as he has been loaned out to Burton ahead of the new season.
Speaking after the transfer, the youngster hailed the League One club for nurturing and helping in the growth of his career.
"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," Daily Mail quoted Sharman-Lowe.
"I'm excited to be joining such a great club, especially as they are known for bringing on young players," the shot-stopper added.
It is understood Chelsea head of recruitment Petr Cech played a role in bringing Sharman-Lowe to Stamford Bridge, with the amicable arrangement being reached after the veteran keeper watched the youngster during the off-season.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea are set for an exciting new 2020/2021 season following a busy summer window that has seen the club complete five major signings.
Of all the top Premier League clubs, the Blues have been the most active in the transfer market, with the west London club now priding themselves with ridiculous strength in depth.
Chelsea's top hierarchy has backed Frank Lampard with a number of fresh legs as they prepare to challenge for titles when the new English Premier League season kicks off on September 12.
