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.
