Chelsea sign three Luton Town brothers in deal which could reach £1m

Twins Rio and Cole Dasilva, 12, and Jay, who is a year older, have moved to Stamford Bridge from the Blue Square Premier side in a surprise deal after five years with the Hatters
Chelsea have completed a remarkable deal which will see them sign three brothers from Luton Town for a fee which could rise up to £1 million.

Jay Dasilva, 13, and twins Rio and Cole, who are a year younger, have joined the Premier League side from the Blue Square Premier outfit after spending five years with the Hatters’ academy.

Speaking about the deal, Luton head of youth Gregg Broughton is quoted by the BBC as saying: "This is a historic deal to see three brothers transferred together.

"Following our loss in the play-offs last season we were told that the boys wished to look at other options, as was their prerogative to do so.

"And now after six months of uncertainty, we are delighted that they have found a club where they are settled and one that recognises the development work that Luton Town have put in over the last five years."
