Aston Villa and Bristol City linked youngster agrees move to Germany

We reported here on The72 last month that Chelsea striker Martel Taylor-Crossdale was on the radar of Aston Villa and Bristol City. Now, however, the pair are set to miss out on the youngster.

The Mirror has reported that Chelsea striker Martell Taylor-Crossdale is set to make a move to German Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim, with his contract at Stamford Bridge set to expire this summer.

A number of English sides have been linked with a move for Taylor-Crossdale ahead of the summer transfer window. Recently relegated Fulham, newly promoted Aston Villa and Championship outfit Bristol City have all been credited with interest, but the youngster seems set to become the last English starlet to opt to make a move to Germany.

Taylor-Crossdale will travel to Germany on Monday to complete a medical, it has been reported. He will join the German club on the cheap after Chelsea opted not to extend his contract with the club.

Jadon Sancho is the most notable English youngster to impress in the Bundesliga in the past few seasons. Premier League youngsters such as Reiss Nelson, Reece Oxford, Ademola Lookman and Emile Smith-Rowe have all tested themselves in Germany in recent seasons as well. Taylor-Crossdale will be hoping that he can emulate the impact of Sancho should his move to Hoffenheim go through as proposed.

For the Chelsea Under-18s, Taylor-Crossdale scored an impressive 35 goals in 52 appearances, picking up six assists along the way as well.

He made his way into the club’s Under-23s side last season, playing eight games and scoring six goals in the Premier League 2. Taylor-Crossdale has continued to feature regularly for the Under-23s over the course of the current season.
