Neil Bath, who has been working within the Chelsea academy now since 2004, alongside Jim Fraser, are both leaving their roles within the Blues academy and departing the club altogether.

It has come as a shock, but Chelsea are already pushing ahead with plans to replace both of them and restructure the academy.

Current director Joe Shields is set to take up more of a senior management role within the academy now by the looks of things.

According to The Athletic, Neil Bath and Jim Fraser’s departures signal a seismic shift for Chelsea’s academy under the ownership of Clearlake Capital and Todd Boehly, with a new management structure expected to be led by co-director of recruitment and talent Joe Shields, as well as director of global recruitment Sam Jewell — set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Well, there’s often never a quiet day at this club right now is there? And when we are in a transfer window as well, when we all have enough dramas and entertainment to follow with transfer pursuits and sagas!

Bath will be a huge miss at Chelsea and he is adored by Blues fans, many of which are going to be very annoyed by this news, whether it was his decision or not. It’s clear that something has been brewing here for some time now and things haven’t felt right. Chelsea’s owners have made big wholesale changes and it makes you think they are keen to get all their own hires in now.
