Championship side Bristol City have signed England under-21 international Jay Dasilva from Chelsea on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old defender played 32 games for the Robins on loan from the Premier League club this past season.

Dasilva, who is currently in action at the under-21 European Championships, was a regular for Chelsea's under-23s but did not play for the first-team.

"Jay proved to be such a great fit for us," boss Lee Johnson said.

He told the club website: "He is a young English player, with fantastic ability, and he will only become a better player."

The signing follows Lloyd Kelly's move to AFC Bournemouth for £13m.
