Jude Soonsup-Bell sends emotional message to Chelsea after joining Tottenham on free transfer

The 19-year-old ended a seven-year spell in west London by moving to Spurs on a free transfer.

Once considered one of Europe’s most promising young players, the forward is set to line up for the club’s U21 side ahead of a likely loan exit this summer.

Chelsea retain a selling fee for the striker, who made his first-team debut in 2021 under manager Thomas Tuchel.


Manchester City had previously been credited with an interest in the forward, although Soonsup-Bell instead joined Carlo Cudicini, Gus Poyet and Frode Grodas as the only players to swap Chelsea for Tottenham in the Premier League era .

While his departure is unlikely to have a huge impact on Chelsea in the short term, the Blues will likely have to sell to rivals, with footballing wealth hoarded in England and academy-to-academy transfers on the rise after Brexit.

Taking to Twitter, Soonsup-Bell wrote: “I’ve had the privilege of being part of @ChelseaFC since I was 12, it’s been an important part of my life and development as a player of football.

“I would like to thank all my teammates, the coaching staff and everyone else at the club for all these memorable years and their support.”
