Chelsea FC have promoted Dujon Sterling to their first-team squad for the club’s pre-season training.
Football.London reveals that the wing-back impressed Thomas Tuchel when he trained with the senior stars during Aprils’ international break.
The report adds that Sterling was on the German manager’s radar back when he was in charge of Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
And now three-time FA Youth Cup winner will have the opportunity to revive his Chelsea career over the next fortnight.
Sterling, who has just a year remaining on his Blues contract, will train under Tuchel during the opening weeks of the club’s pre-season.
The 21-year-old could even feature in Chelsea’s friendly fixtures due to Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta’s extended absence following their involvement in the Euros.
The Stamford Bridge outfit are on the hunt for a new right-sided player this summer after their failed attempt to sign Achraf Hakimi.
Sterling’s rise to the senior squad could cap an incredible turnaround for the youngster following a difficult 18-month spell.
The England U20 international was seen as one of Chelsea’s brightest academy talents when he made his debut under Antonio Conte at 17.
