Chelsea close to sealing £4.8m move for 19-year-old midfielder

Chelsea are in pole position to sign Derby County midfielder, Max Bird, this summer transfer window.

This is as reported by a British newspaper, Daily Mail on Saturday.

Chelsea are free to do business in the transfer market again, after successfully appealing against a FIFA-imposed transfer ban earlier this year.

The Blues manager, Frank Lampard, worked with Bird when he was the coach of Derby County last season.

Lampard is ready to clinch a £4.8million deal for the 19-year-old England youngster to move to Stamford Bridge.

When asked about Bird during his time as the Rams boss, Lampard told reporters: “He stands out as a young man.

“He is very polite with everyone, he has a real desire to improve, and he is a good team-mate.

“Whether it has been for the youth teams or when he has been with the first team, he is an all-rounder.

“I have found him to be a great lad, and our relationship is really good.”
