Huddersfield Head Coach Carlos Corberán has admitted he is delighted that the club have signed Levi Colwill from Chelsea.
Colwill, who has been capped by England at Under-17 level, is a naturally left footed centre back and has made rapid progression through the Chelsea ranks in recent times.
Having started all three Papa John’s Trophy games alongside 18 appearances for the Club’s Under-23 side in the Premier League 2 last season, he finished the season training with Thomas Tuchel’s senior squad in the build-up to their Champions League victory over Manchester City
The Blues have big hopes for the young man and have decided to send him out on loan for the next 12 months in hope that he can get some much needed game time for a real shot at proving himself in the Chelsea side the following season.
But after Huddersfield managed to wrap up a deal for Colwill, Head Coach Carlos Corberán has admitted just how delighted he is to bring the young man to the club.
“I’m looking forward to working with Levi this season, as he is a very talented player with big potential.
“He has many of the qualities we look for in our centre backs. He is already very impressive physically, and his athletic ability will help the team defend the space in behind. He is also very comfortable in possession, as you would expect from someone who is in the Chelsea Academy.
“We will do everything we can to help him adapt, both off the pitch as he moves north and on the pitch in the Sky Bet Championship.”
