Chelsea starlet Levi Colwill attends Southampton game amidst transfer rumours
Chelsea wonderkid Levi Colwill attended a Southampton game amidst rumours linking the defender with a move to St Marys.
The 19-year-old spent last season on loan at Championship side Huddersfield Town and his performances helped the club reach the play-off final.
He has been strongly linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer as the club have been actively trying to recruit a defender to play ahead of him, and Southampton have been one of the parties to be reportedly interested in him. [Hampshire Live]
However, he has now added fire to the flame of a Southampton transfer as he posting on his Instagram stories from St Marys on 27 July, watching the Saints’ pre-season game against Monaco.
Southampton beat the French side 3-1, and the promising defender was seen in the stands, as well as posting himself watching the game with friends.

If Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were able to secure the signature of the teenager, it would be a huge deal for the club and they would be signing a player with huge potential.
Colwill, who came through the Chelsea youth academy, helped Huddersfield concede the seventh least goals in the Championship last season.
He established himself as a dependable and defensively-sound operator, who is composed in possession and efficient in the air.
The teenager is one of Chelsea’s most promising talents and has even earned comparisons to Chelsea legend John Terry.
Signing Colwill would fit in the transfer policy the Saints have seemingly adopted this window as they have focused on young players with high sell-on value.
He would continue in this vein as well as already having the talent and experience to make an instant impact to their defence, and so would be a fantastic signing for the club.
