Ampadu heads to Germany to complete loan switch
Chelsea's Ethan Ampadu has been spotted in Germany as he edges closer to sealing a loan move to RB Leipzig.
The former Exeter man has not travelled with Chelsea for their pre-season tour of Asia after being told he was free to leave on-loan for 2019-20.
Ampadu and his representatives have spent the last week speaking with a number of clubs and it appears RB Leipzig have won the race for his services.
Aston Villa and Reading were also known to be interested but after being spotted by fans in Leipzig it looks like his future is sealed.
The Bundesliga side have earned a reputation for working with young talent and Wales international Ampadu perfectly fits the bill.
