Chelsea Part Company With Connor Hunte?

It appears that England Under-17 international winger Connor Hunte is no longer a member of the Chelsea academy.

Hunte, who played more than thirty times as a schoolboy last season across Under-18 and Under-21 football, was building himself quite an impressive reputation for his standout performances for the Blues whilst being the subject of much transfer speculation throughout the 2012-13 season.

Despite being linked with a host of suitors, he reportedly agreed to scholarship terms in January and was set to sign a professional deal upon turning seventeen in September. However, the relationship between player and club reportedly deteriorated towards the end of the last campaign and it is now believed that the decision was made to release him.
