English Premier League giants, Chelsea have signed promising French goalkeeper, Nicolas Tie.
French sports, daily L’Equipe reports that Tie has just signed the first professional contract of his very young career, and the Franco-Ivorian is now contracted to the West London club until the summer of 2021.
Tie was on the radar of the Blues since 2014 but penned a scholarship deal with the club in July 2017 after celebrating his 16th birthday.
Last season, the young shot-stopper was a non-playing substitute in the UEFA Youth League and EFL Trophy.
But he was in goal for nine matches in the U18 Premier League and conceded 13 goals.
Tie, who joined Chelsea from French Championnat National 3 club, FC Poitiers, was born in Lille.
