Jake Clarke-Salter completes season long loan to Birmingham City

Congratulations to our England Under 21 captain Jake Clarke-Salter on completing a season-long loan move to Championship club Birmingham City from Chelsea today.

Jake joins up with fellow KeySports client and Blues midfield star David Davis at St. Andrews as the Blue half of Birmingham look to push for promotion back into the Premier League.

This move comes off the back of a fantastic loan in the Netherlands where Jake excelled for Vitesse in the Eredivisie. He racked up a total of 36 games for the Arnhem based club and scored 1 goal, helping them to a 5th place finish.

At 21, Jake has now made more than 60 senior appearances in his career and this loan presents our man with the perfect platform to showcase his talents in what is widely regarded as the 5th best league in Europe.

Jake’s form in the Netherlands also prompted parent club Chelsea to offer our man with a new and improved contract.

Congratulations Jake, Blues are a great club and a perfect match for you. Enjoy your season and go be Exceptional.
