Just barely two months after signing his scholarship deal at Chelsea, talented Chelsea youngster Jude Soonsup-Bell has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The young Englishman turned 17 yesterday and he signs his first professional contract for Chelsea today.
The young striker announced this good news on twitter earlier today and that sparked a good reaction amongst Chelsea fans.

This is following a very good run of form which earned him a call up to Chelsea’s first team training last week.
Jude was expected to feature in Chelsea’s third round FA cup clash against Morecambe alongside the other five development squad players called up, but unfortunately only Tino Anjorin made the squad.
The 17-year-old had a very good run of form in the U-18 premier league games – scoring 11 goals in 9 matches.
Jude was then promoted to Chelsea’s U-23 where he has currently registered 5 goals in three matches.
A total of 16 goals in 12 academy matches since he signed his professional contract. That’s astonishing.
He is expected to remain at Chelsea for the rest of the season and hope to continue his current firing form for the academy.
Surely if he keeps up his current form, it won’t be long before he starts being a regular in Chelsea’s first team.
