Ethan Ampadu completes £10m Chelsea exit to join Leeds United



Leeds United have completed the signing of Ethan Ampadu from Chelsea.

The 22-year-old has made the switch to Elland Road on a four-year contract until June 2027 after agreeing a £7 million plus £3 million in add-ons deal with Chelsea.

After his arrival from Exeter City in 2017, Ampadu was unable to cement himself in the Chelsea first-team and spent time on loan at RB Leipzig, Sheffield United, Venezia and Spezia.

Ampadu has now joined Daniel Farke’s Leeds side who were relegated to the Championship from the Premier League at the end of last season.

On his move to Yorkshire, Ampadu told the LUTV: “I think as a club, the history doesn’t have to be sold.

“Everyone knows how big of a club Leeds United is. Obviously we are now in the position we are, but we all want more.

“When I spoke with the boss, as soon as I got off the phone call I knew what I wanted, he really impressed me.

“He told me what he liked about me and where he thinks I can improve as a player.

“That all helped me choose Leeds United.”
