Chelsea midfielder Juan Castillo has confirmed on social media that he will be leaving the club this summer.

The Dutchman is out of contract at the end of next month and has clearly decided not to pen a new deal with Chelsea and, instead, seek a new club for next season.

He made 21 appearances for Chelsea’s under-23’s in the league last season, playing at left-back and left-midfield and also played four times in the EFL Trophy for the club.

Castillo joined Chelsea from the famed Ajax academy in 2016, signing a three-year deal at the time, and will now move on to the next chapter in his career.

He has already been capped seven times by Holland at under-19 level and is highly regarded, which means it will come as a blow for Chelsea to lose him at this point in his career.
