Chelsea are set to reward young right-back Reece James with a promotion to the senior squad in the upcoming season after an impressive display in the championship for Wigan Athletic.

James, 19 made 40 appearances for the tics in all competitions with his performances earning him a spot in the Championship team of the season.

Given Chelsea’s transfer ban scenario and Reece’s impressive outings, the England U-21 international is touted to be a replacement for the club’s vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Current number two right back Davide Zappacosta has endured a difficult spell at the Bridge this season making only 10 starts none of which have been in the premier league is expected to force his way back to Italy.
