Chalobah named 'England Youth Player of the Year'

Chalobah named 'England Youth Player of the Year'

On-loan Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has been named the 'England Youth Player of the Year'.

The award, which is voted for by Club England coaches, was presented to the 18 year-old midfielder-cum-defender at St. George's Park this evening.

Chalobah, who joined Watford on-loan on August Deadline Day of 2012, has represented England's U19 and U21 sides this season and will look to add to his debut cap this week at Stuart Pearce's side take on Sweden.

Since making his England youth debut for the U16's at the tender age of 13, Chalobah has risen up through the ranks at an alarming rate, and last summer helped the U19's to the European Championsip semi-finals in Croatia.

Derby County winger Will Hughes came second to Chalobah, whilst Everton's John Lundstram rounded off the top three.

Congratulations Nathaniel!
