Chelsea have completed a 'historic' deal to bring three young brothers to the club from Luton Town.

Twins Rio and Cole Dasilva (12), as well as 13-year-old sibling Jay, make the switch to west London in separate five-figure sum deals.

The Hatters claim the collective value of the deal could reach in excess of £1 million, and after five years with the club, head of youth Gregg Broughton is pleased to have reached an agreement with the Barclays Premier League giants after months of uncertainty.

"This is a historic deal to see three brothers transferred together," Broughton told the official Luton website on the deal.

"Following our loss in the play-offs last season we were told that the boys wished to look at other options, as was their prerogative to do so.

"And now after six months of uncertainty, we are delighted that they have found a club where they are settled and one that recognises the development work that Luton Town have put in over the last five years."

After playing a key part in their early development, Broughton has been left in no doubt that all three have individual attributes that could take them a long way in the game.

Their next target will be to make an impact in the Blues' academy set-up, with Andre Villas-Boas continuing to give the green light for investment in the club's youth system.

"I am hesitant to talk about the boys in the collective term because they all have wonderful unique attributes, but this is a historical deal," concluded Broughton.

"Jay is a special talent, a fantastic student of the game whose temperament compliments his technical ability.

"Cole has strong physical attributes and is very comfortable in possession while Rio is a real livewire whose ability to play in tight areas has always allowed him to shine."
