Chelsea decide against signing Sankoh following trial period as he completes Stuttgart switch


Mo Sankoh Stuttgart

Mohamed Sankoh has completed a switch to Stuttgart following Chelsea's decision not to sign him after a brief trial period at their Cobham training centre.

Goalreported back in Aprilthat both Chelsea and Atletico Madrid had registered their interest in the 16-year-old, who has been compared to former Stamford Bridgefrontman Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues grantedSankoh a trial, but after witnessing his abilities in close quarters, have ultimately passed up the chance to bring him onto their books permanently.

A man who played a key role in the Netherlands'European Under-17Championshiptriumph in 2019 has instead completed a transfer to German outfit Stuttgart.

The German club's sporting directorThomas Krucken expressed his delight after tying Sankoh down to a long-term contract, while confirming thathe will go straight into the club's U-19 squad.

"We are happy to be able to sign Mo, a highly gifted offensive talent, in a joint effort across the sports departments. We will aim tofurther encouragehis high development potential in the next few years," said Krucken.

"We will carefully and purposefully introduce himto the requirements of the men's team and start his path at VfB in the U19s."

Tottenham, Atalanta and Milan had also been linked withSankoh in recent weeks, while Stoke had been eager to extend his stay at the bet365 Stadium, but he was ultimately convinced by the project on offer at Stuttgart.
