Chelsea has confirmed the signing of Aziz Deen-Conteh to play in the position of left-back.  Born in Bumpeh, Sierra Leone the 19 year old Aziz entered the Chelsea Academy at the age of 13.

Aziz has represented England (for whom he qualifies through residency and schooling) at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-19 levels. As part of the 2009 England Under-16 party, he won the Sky Sports Victory Shield tournament, a feat shared with three other Chelsea team-mates.

He was called up to the Under-19 squad during the 2010-11 season and was capped by Noel Blake in 2011-12, but remains eligible to play for Sierra Leone.
