Chelsea rising star Ampadu fractures his ankle: out for the season

by -

Chelsea rising star Ethan Ampadu is out for the rest of the season after fracturing his ankle in the Youth League clash against Real Madrid, the London Evening Standard reports.

The injury forced the 17-year-old to withdraw from Ryan Gigg‘s first Wales squad, with the Dragons due to face China and one of Uruguay or the Czech Republic before the end of the month.

Ampadu last represented Chelsea in the 4-0 win over Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round and has been given a number of first-team opportunities by Antonio Conte in all competitions this season.
