Fiabema is a highly rated talent and should end up being a useful signing for the Blues as they move towards a policy of promoting more youth players.

Lampard has done well to use exciting talent from his academy this season, and Fiabema could be one to call upon in a couple of years’ time if he continues his fine development.

VG add that Fiabema was at the 3-0 win over Burnley, as they also post a photo of him alongside Callum Hudson-Odoi in the Stamford Bridge dressing room.

CFC boss Lampard will be pleased to finally be able to sign players after having to deal with a transfer ban when he first took over in the summer.
