Tyler Dibling makes Southampton return after two months at Chelsea
Southampton attacker Tyler Dibling made a high-profile move to Chelsea two months ago, only to return to the St. Mary’s.
According to the Athletic, the Saints were not able to offer professional terms to the teenager who appeared destined for a big move.
He then moved to July and the assumption was that he would sign a senior contract when he turned 17, but he did not feel that Cobham was best suited for his development and chose to return.
Chelsea are usually known to be an ideal breeding ground for players between 15 and 21 as many have gone on to have remarkable careers.
The striker has been phenomenal for the B and U-18 teams and even Newcastle were believed to be keeping tabs on him.
However, the decision to move to London was understandable and many at the club gave him their blessings to leave.
The Blues were eyeing moves for the top young talent in the country and they also secured the signings of Zak Sturge, Omari Hutchinson and Carney Chukwuemeka from three different Premier League clubs.
Due to this massive influx, it’s plausible that Dibling felt like one of many rather than the big fish as he was back in Southampton.
This surely would’ve affected his career and returning to the Saints may possibly be the best thing for him to do in order to continue his progress as he looks to be on the right track.
