Chelsea centre-back Marc Guehi has officially joined Swansea on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season, the Blues’ official website has confirmed.

This will be the first loan spell for the 19-year-old who has already made his professional debut for his boyhood club this season in a 7-1 win over Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup.

He has also captained Chelsea’s development squad this season as they top the table in their league.

At Swansea, Guehi will be reunited with Steve Cooper, his manager at the World Cup-winning England U17 team.

In that tournament, the defender featured in every game and scored a goal in the final game against Spain.

The Ivory Coast-born player will also join his former teammate Rhian Brewster who joined Swansea on loan from Liverpool.
