By Ian Townsend

Sami Tlemcani signs on at Merstham

Merstham have announced the loan signing of Chelsea keeper Sami Tlemcani.

Sami moved to Stamford Bridge aged just sixteen at the start of the 2020-21 campaign, crossing the channel from Paris FC. He has already been in the Moroccan senior international squad, and has already played for his country at Under 23 level.

He has been part of the Under 18 side at Chelsea- and is still only seventeen years old.

He may get to make his debut as the Moatsiders travel to Cray Wanderers on Saturday.
