Nathaniel Chalobah of Chelsea, last night, passed his medical ahead of a loan move to Billy Davies' Nottingham Forest.

The England under-21 midfielder, who can also play at centre-back, played regularly in the Championship for Watford last season. 

Despite being just 18, Chalobah has already notched up 10 appearances for the England under-21 team, as well as 42 appearances in the Football League.

Ahead of the loan move, that was finalised on the 19th, Forest Chairman Fawaz Al Hasawi tweeted: "Please join me in welcoming Nathaniel Chalobah to the club."

The young man has already been spoken about by some top coaches around the county. Jose Mourinho said in July: "He is a very, very good player. I like him very much and am very impressed."

But the Portuguese boss went on to talk about how vital it was for Chalobah to play regular football: "He could be in our squad already but we think one more season will help and then he will come back for 2014-15.

"It will be his last one out on loan. He is very, very good."

Despite being relatively young, Chalobah has not been short of honours. He helped Chelsea Youth to Youth Cup victories in 2010 and 2012.

He helped England under-17s win the 2010 UEFA European Championship. And in 2013, picked up the England Men's Youth Player of the Year award.

After a successful season at Watford last year, helping the club to reach the 2013 play-off final, the future Chelsea and England star is confident of yet another great season in a bid to play at the highest level.
