Chilean teenager Christian Cuevas reveals that he has agreed to join Chelsea next season.

Chilean midfielder Cristian Cuevas has claimed that he will join Chelsea in the summer.

A deal in the region of £1.7m has been reportedly agreed for Cuevas, and the Union Espanola player has admitted that he is delighted to be moving to England.

The 17-year-old told Radio Cooperativa: "Everything went very quickly and everything was settled this week.

"Chelsea were following me for over a year and we have finally reached an agreement.

"I am already taking English classes so I can integrate quickly. It will be a big change. I could account for all the differences there were when I was there. But I am calm and very happy."

Cuevas has scored three goals in 12 appearances for Chile's Under-20 side.
