Chelsea seal deal for Castillo

Chelsea have wrapped up a winter deal for Ajax youngster Juan Familia Castillo, sources reveal.

It had been reported last month that Manchester United were keeping tabs on the Netherlands under-16 international.

However, in a new twist to the story, the Blues have stolen the march on their league rivals and now look to set to land the teenager's signature.

Interim Blues boss Guus Hiddink is said to have played a prime role in luring the Ajax youngster to West London.

The 16-year-old is expected to link up with the Premier League holders before the winter transfer deadline.
