Before the 2023–2024 season, Chelsea completed the acquisition of Jamaican forward Dujuan “Whisper” Richards from Phoenix All-Stars.
Richards, who just had a two-week trial with Newcastle United, signed with the Blues.
On Saturday night, Fabrizio Romano revealed this in a tweet posted on his Twitter account.
He tweeted, “Official. Chelsea signed Jamaican talent Dujuan ‘Whisper’ Richards — born in 2005, wonderkid joining from Phoenix All-Stars.”
“Newcastle were close to signing him but Chelsea have now completed the deal, director Joe Shields was crucial in the negotiations.”
