With the young crop of talented players coming through the academy system at Chelsea, it’s easy for some names to go unnoticed.

But even amongst all the talk surrounding players like Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ethan Ampadu and Mason Mount, Daishawn Redan still is getting attention.

Only 17-years-old, Redan has had a prestigious career already.

Having joined from Ajax as a 16-year-old, he quickly progressed through the academy as a scholar.

Despite starting the season with the Under-18s, he ended up as the first-choice striker for Joe Edwards’ PL2 team.

The Dutchman debuted for the development squad in January, coming off the bench in a Checkatrade Trophy match against Portsmouth while still only 16.

And after returning to the Under-18s, Redan scored twice in the FA Youth Cup final against Arsenal as they retained the trophy once again.

Internationally, Redan’s had a good time of it as well.

He scored three goals to help The Netherlands win the 2018 European Championships.

Due to his academy form, he’s been rewarded with a call up to The Netherlands Under-19 squad.

And Redan’s scored twice in two games against Germany and Armenia.

So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to Redan’s two goals for the Under-19s:
