Chelsea sign Wallace from Fluminense
Chelsea Football Club has announced that they have finally agreed terms with Fluminense for the transfer of Wallace in the January window. However, as part of the deal, the 18-year-old defender will continue to play for Fluminense until the end of this season.
An attacking right-back, Wallace Oliveira dos Santos made his senior debut for Brazil this year at the age of 17. He has appeared 18 times in the league for the first team, helping them to clinch the Brazilian league championship, the Rio State League and the Guanabara Cup.
Wallace, an Under-20 international, was part of the Brazil squad that won the South American Under-17 championship last year, and helped his country to a fourth-placed finish at the World Cup in Mexico.
