Chelsea starlet Charly Musonda Jr. has joined La Liga's Real Betis on loan until the end of the season with an option to extend the deal, according to the Telegraph.
After agreeing a new contract with the Blues last summer, binding him to the club until 2019, the ambitious teenager turned down a loan move to Vitesse Arnhem in a bid to break into Chelsea's senior side.
However, both Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink failed to give Musonda a chance, prompting a move away to seek regular football elsewhere.

Nevertheless, the 19-year-old is highly rated at Stamford Bridge and has thoroughly impressed for the Under-21's this season, playing a vital part in their 5-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers recently.
Son of former Zambia international and Anderlecht midfielder, Charly Musonda Sr., the attacking midfielder completed a move to Chelsea in 2012. Since then, he has slowly moved through the ranks in west London and become one of the club's brightest prospects.
Musonda's style of play suggests he'll be perfectly suited to La Liga and will relish the challenge of first-team football. His exquisite first touch, pace and ability to breeze past opposition players will undoubtedly shine in Spain.
In the final third, the playmaker's passing accuracy and eye for a through ball will also prove vital to Betis' chances of survival.
Although lacking in strength, Musonda's determination, control and natural fitness make him a tough adversary to shake off and dispossess.
