Chelsea Ordered To Pay £2.5m To Exeter City For Ethan Ampadu

share on:

Chelsea have been ordered to pay a £2.5m compensation fee to Exeter City following midfielder Ethan Ampadu’s move to the club last summer.

The two teams were unable to agree a fee when the 17-year old moved to Stamford Bridge in July last summer.\

Ethan Ampadu, already a Wales international aged 17, came through Exeter’s academy but moved to Stamford Bridge last summer. He has made seven appearances for the Chelsea senior team, including as a substitute in the 3-1 Premier League win over Huddersfield in December.

As a youth player, the defensive midfielder’s transfer fee was set by a tribunal, with the ruling handed down on Friday.

Exeter are guaranteed to receive £1.3m based on a transfer fee plus international and first-team appearances already made.

The fee will rise to £2.5m depending on Ampadu’s first-team appearances, with Exeter also entitled to receive a 20 per cent sell-on-fee should he leave Chelsea.

A Professional Football Compensation Committee statement read: “Chelsea Football Club should pay Exeter City an initial net fee of £850,000. In addition to the initial payment a fee of £450,000 is also payable.

“This fee incorporates an amount for the player signing a first professional contract, making five first-team appearances and obtaining a senior international cap.”

  • Exeter will also get a 20 per cent sell-on fee should Ampadu leave Stamford Bridge.
