Oluwaseyi Ojo

I’m not a soccer fan tho’ but this caught my attention and I’m like wow!!!! A 14 year old Nigerian Oluwaseyi Ojo signed to Chelsea for €2m.. Amazing!! I guess he’s the most expensive ’14 year old’ player right now or am I wrong?

Chelsea have agreed to pay a staggering £2million to make an MK Dons youth-team player the most expensive 14-year-old in football. Teenage sensation Oluwaseyi Ojo is viewed as one of the hottest prospects in English football, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City all having tracked the youngster.

But Chelsea have won the race to sign the mid fielder after making three offers for Ojo while he was playing for England Under 16s against Northern Ireland at Chesterfield on Wednesday.

The teenager was introduced as a half-time substitute and made an impact after two minutes, setting up Mason Bennett’s second as England secured a 3-1 win.

The impressive cameo sparked an incredible series of bids from Chelsea during the game. Knowing that scouts from the country’s other top clubs were also at the game, they made three bids in 45 minutes.

MK Dons rejected the opening two offers before agreeing a package understood to be worth an initial £1.5million, plus another £500,000 in add-ons. Click here for more stories
