Rangers take former Chelsea kid 'on trial' as Nigerian youngster looks for new club
The 16-year-old left the Stamford Bridge youth academy and has reportedly been on trial at the Hummel Training Centre.


Highly-rated teenager Adrian Akande has trained with Rangers after leaving Chelsea, according to reports.
The 16-year-old decided to leave the Stamford Bridge club and the Nigerian could make his way to Glasgow.
The Daily Post in his homeland say he has been on trial with Rangers in recent weeks and also had time training with English Premier League side West Ham and German outfit Hoffenheim.
The Ibrox side have previously signed Nathan Young-Coombes from the Chelsea youth system while Billy Gilmour went the opposite way.


The talented winger made his U23 Premier League 2 debut for Chelsea in a game against Newcastle as a 15-year-old.
He joined the club from Crystal Palace as a 12-year-old and was part of the Nigeria squad for the U17 African Cup of Nation earlier this year.

Celtic have also been linked with a move for him while Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham have all been credited with an interest.

Young-Coombes came from Chelsea and looks brilliant at youth level so far pouching some young talent from the English academy's could prove very fruitful in the future

Agreed. Down south there is a much bigger and better talent pool which means players that won’t make it at a Chelsea or Arsenal could most certainly make it at us.

West Ham where rumoured to have made the lad an offer a while back, not sure what came of it but was definitely being discussed in West Ham forums.

This is a planned strategy by our youth dept following the signing of NYC. There is now so much talent in English system that we hope to pick up some gems and offer them a pathway and profile.
Within the next 5 years we simply need a current youth or 2 to make the first team and play regularly.

It would help massively to attract talent when we have examples of players making the first team.
