Chelsea teenager Ethan Ampadu will spend next season on loan in Germany at Bundesliga club RB Leipzig.

The 18-year-old, who can play either as a centre-back or as a defensive midfielder, featured just five times last season under former Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

Current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed recently he tried to sign Ampadu on loan in January when he was in charge at Derby.

The move to RB Leipzig will be Ampadu's first loan spell since his arrival at Stamford Bridge from Exeter two years ago.
