Chelsea on Brink of Signing Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall

Chelsea, under the leadership of Enzo Maresca, are poised to secure the signature of Leicester City midfield sensation Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall for a fee of £30 million.

David Ornstein reports that the Blues have successfully negotiated terms with Leicester after protracted discussions.

Dewsbury-Hall, a product of Leicester’s youth system, has been instrumental in their recent successes. The 25-year-old midfielder shone brightly in the last Championship season, playing a pivotal role in Leicester’s promotion campaign. With 12 goals and 14 assists in 44 games, plus an additional assist in the FA Cup, Dewsbury-Hall proved his mettle and versatility, becoming a crucial player for Maresca.

Maresca, now at the helm of Chelsea, views Dewsbury-Hall as essential to his strategy for revitalising the squad. The Italian manager’s desire to reunite with his former Leicester protege underscores his belief in Dewsbury-Hall’s ability to adapt and thrive in the Premier League.

Chelsea had already secured personal terms with Dewsbury-Hall, who was eager to join the London club. Despite interest from other teams, Chelsea’s persistence in negotiations has paid off. The midfielder is set to undergo a medical and sign a six-year contract, marking a fresh chapter in his career and a promising addition to Maresca’s plans for Chelsea’s resurgence.
