Chelsea star leaves Stamford Bridge as Cucurella signs 6-year deal

Chelsea on Friday confirmed that defender, Levi Colwill, has left Stamford Bridge to join Brighton & Hove Albion on loan.

Chelsea said in a statement via its website that Colwill departed the club as Marc Cucurella joined the Blues on a permanent transfer after signing a six-year deal.

Cucurella officially joined Chelsea from Brighton this summer.

“Levi Colwill has joined Brighton & Hove Albion on loan on the same day Marc Cucurella makes a permanent transfer in the other direction,” Chelsea’s statement read in part.

“Nineteen-year-old Colwill has been at Chelsea for 10 years, having joined the Blues’ Academy at Under-9s level. He trained with Thomas Tuchel’s squad during pre-season and has featured regularly for our Academy sides, as well as representing England at various youth levels.

“The defender now has the chance of top-flight experience with the Seagulls who finished ninth last season.”
