Barnsley have signed Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo on a season-long loan deal.

Ugbo, 18, joins the Championship side for the 2017-18 season, having scored 23 goals in 35 matches for Chelsea's under-23 and under-18 sides last term.

He also scored once in three appearances to help England's under-20 side win the Toulon Tournament in June.

"He is a forward who has pace, height, strength and power as well as a keen eye for goal," Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom told the club website.
