Speaking as a Chelsea player for the first time, Palmer said, “I’ve joined Chelsea because the project here sounds good and because of the platform I will have to try to showcase my talents.”
Originating from a family of Manchester United fans, Palmer joined the City academy at the age of eight and moved through the youth ranks at the club.
Palmer scored the winning goal in the FA Youth Cup final against Chelsea in 2020 for the City Under-18’s- with whom he also captained.
The wide forward, who can also play as a number 10, joins the Blues on a seven-year contract, with the option of a further year, and will wear the number 20 shirt at Stamford Bridge this season.
