Rivals drop Chelsea reject bomb

Published Add your comment

Queens Park Rangers have taken Chelsea outcast Jacob Mellis on trial, according to The Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old played in a QPR reserve game earlier this week, scoring in defeat to West Ham United.

Mellis was controversially dismissed by Chelsea last week after setting off a smoke grenade at the club's training complex.

However, he appears to have been handed a second chance in his career, with struggling Rangers looking to take him on to assist their survival chances.

Chelsea dismissed Mellis with immediate effect after the club's training ground was evacuated following the letting off of a smoke grenade.

Blues teammate Billy Clifford was fined for the incident after admitting to bring the item to the centre.

Without Mellis, Chelsea will defend a 2-1 lead in the second-leg of their FA Youth Cup tie against Manchester United next week.
