Chelsea have confirmed that Young striker Armando Broja will join Southampton on a season-long loan.
Armando Broja will spend the 2021/22 season on loan in the Premier League after completing a move to Southampton as he looks to gain his first regular top flight experience.
The 19 year-old scored 11 goals in 34 games on loan at Vitesse last season and was rewarded with a new five-year Chelsea contract this summer.
After signing for the saints Broja was quoted saying:
“I feel very happy.
“I was really excited to join Southampton. It’s obviously a very good Premier League club.
“They’ve got a good history and they play in the best league in the world, so it’s amazing for a young player to experience it, be in and around a Premier League team and learn and develop from the older players, the staff and everyone here. It’s a very good opportunity.”
And Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl added:
“Armando is a very talented player who we were impressed by last season. He is young but he comes now with a full season of experience in senior football with a good team and he brings a lot of qualities that can help us.
“He is a strong, quick player with a good instinct and this makes him a good fit for the way we like to play.
“I know how highly regarded he is by Chelsea and I think this will be a good place for him to continue his own development as well.”
