Martell Taylor-Crossdale has signed for Fulham on a two-year deal.
The 19-year old striker , whose Chelsea contract had expired, was set for a move to Hoffenheim.
Terms were agreed with the German club but Taylor-Crossdale opted to stay in west London after Fulham made him an offer.
Chelsea were ready to offer him a new contract but decided to let him go in light of interest from other clubs.
He was a member of the England Under-18 team which won the Toulon Tournament in 2017 and has represented his country at other age levels.
