Chelsea sign up young star Ethan Wady on one-year contract extension before sending keeper out on Woking loan transfer | The Sun

CHELSEA youngster Ethan Wady signed a one-year extension with the club before being offloaded to Woking on loan.

This marks the goalkeeper's fifth loan stint ever since his move to the club's esteemed academy in 2018.
