Chelsea flop Josh McEachran, once tipped as England’s next promising midfielder to fill the boots of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, has split up with his actress girlfriend Brooke Vincent after the couple found their long distance relationship too difficult to maintain, according to Heat.

Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster in ITV soap opera Coronation Street, had been dating the midfielder since 2011, but they both went their seperate ways earlier this week.
The cause of the split is said to have been down to the struggle of a long distance relationship, following McEachran’s loan to Chelsea’s Dutch feeder club Vitesse Arnhem, despite them still having feelings for each other.
All may not be lost for the celebrity couple though, as they have broken up in the past following a series of arguments, but soon got back together again.
The 22-year-old may be back in the United Kingdom soon enough, having played in only 12 games for the Dutch side, scoring none and assisting just two.
