Martin Lol Posted March 27, 2007 Share Posted March 27, 2007 I mentioned in another thread the way Chelsea were hoovering up a lot of the good young talent across Europe, Sinclair, Bertrand, Woods and Taiwo amongst others. The latest seems to be Jeffrey Bruma. Chelsea have raided Feyenoord's youth team to sign teenage midfielder Jeffrey Bruma, according to reports in Holland. Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad reports that The Blues have secured the 15-year-old on a prospective four-year deal. Bruma has not signed a professional deal at De Kuip as he is yet to turn 16, and Chelsea appear to have taken advantage by convincing the starlet to make the move to England. Sporting director Frank Arnesen (pictured) has exercised his keen knowledge of the Dutch market, developed during a lengthy spell in PSV Eindhoven's managerial ranks, to clinch the signing of the player who will be lifted from Feyenoord's Under 16 team. The Dutch side have one of Holland's finest youth academies - with previous graduates including Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Robin van Persie and Celtic's Evander Sno - but Bruma will now be looking to rise through the ranks in West London, not Rotterdam. http://msnsport.skysports.com/list.aspx?hlid=457084&cpid=8&clid=8&lid=&title=Blues+'sign+Feyenoord+starlet' I think this is one of the reasons why Arnesen appears to have Abramovich's ear more than Mourinho, brought in to recruit talent on the cheap and is delivering.
