Chelsea ordered to pay £2.5m to Exeter for Ethan Ampadu.
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.
Two years ago Ampadu, became Exeter’s youngest ever player when making his debut aged 15 years, 10 months and 26 days.
The two clubs were battling about the fee when the 17-year old moved to Stamford Bridge in July last summer.
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 set to receive a 20 per cent sell-on-fee should he leave Chelsea.
Since joining Chelsea, Ampadu has gone on to make seven first-team appearances for the Blues and has received two full international caps for Wales.
