James has become one of many real success stories at Chelsea this season as they’ve moved away from their previous strategy of signing big names and expensive players to a culture of using players from their academy more.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard deserves credit for trusting and developing young players like James, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham, but it’s also fair to say that this is a very exciting generation coming through at Stamford Bridge.
James looks a huge talent and fans tweeted their excitement at today’s news as they tipped him to be a future captain and one of the best right-backs in the world.
It’s clear the youngster himself is as delighted as they are!
