Blue no more

The 19-year-old Scotland youth international has reportedly put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Serie B club

Chelsea starlet Harvey St Clair is set to leave the Blues to sign for Venezia of Italy, according to reports.

St Clair, the Scotland Under-21 winger, has been with Chelsea since the Under-8 age level, and he made his Under-18 debut aged just 15.

He signed a scholarship deal in July 2015, and in 2016/17 he was a member of Chelsea’s Under-18s as they won the FA Youth Cup and the Under-18 Premier League.

Last season, St Clair made 30 appearances in all at youth level, scoring seven goals and creating a further four.


But now, according to Gianluca Di Marzio , 19-year-old St Clair will leave Stamford Bridge to join Serie B side Venezia, managed by Italy legend Filippo Inzaghi.

The teenager will reportedly undergo his medical today, and will pen a four-year contract with the Venice club.
