Chelsea defender Dylan Williams has agreed a season-long loan deal at Burton Albion in League One.

The 20-year-old has already completed his medical and will effectively leave Chelsea permanently, with an obligation-to-buy clause included.

Williams joined Chelsea after making nine appearances at Derby County in the Championship but did not play for the first team at Stamford Bridge despite being named on the bench on multiple occasions.

The move will see him link up with former Chelsea Under-21s manager Mark Robinson amid major changes under Burton’s new owners, Nordic Football Group.

Robinson has also signed midfielder Charlie Webster from Chelsea and former Blues goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has joined from Exeter City.

Robinson will begin pre-season on Monday at St George’s Park, a 330-acre site which is also home to England's national football teams.
