Only a few weeks after the teenager was given a six-year contract at Stamford Bridge, Newcastle United and Chelsea have reached an agreement for Lewis Hall to join the club.
Newcastle will sign the left-back for an initial fee of £28 million, with the possibility of future add-ons, according to The Telegraph.
The Chelsea club holds the 18-year-old England U21 international in high regard, and he has already made 12 first-team appearances.
However, the West London club has apparently opted to sell him because they need to balance their books in order to stay within expenditure limits.
Prior to Mason Mount’s transfer to Manchester United, Hall had been linked with a loan move to Crystal Palace. However, he now appears destined to depart Chelsea and become the club’s next academy graduate to leave.
