Chelsea youngster Colkett moves to Sweden

Midfielder Charlie Colkett has completed a move to Östersunds FK.

Colkett, 22, has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Swedish side and leaves Chelsea having not made a senior appearance for the club.

A product of the Blues’ academy, Colkett spent the first half of this season on loan at Shrewsbury Town.

He has also picked up first-team experience during loan spells at Bristol Rovers, Swindon and Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem.

Östersunds technical director David Webb said: “He is a young guy who is incredibly technical and creative. We have chased him for a long time and now he has finally signed for us.”
