Chesterfield have snapped up former Chelsea youngster Reece Mitchell on a two-year deal.

The pacey forward saw out his contract at Stamford Bridge before agreeing to join the Spireites.

Mitchell joined Chelsea through one of their summer camps as an Under 11 and made his youth team debut as an Under 15 in 2011.

The London-born striker, who can also play out wide, has played for England Under 16s and won the FA Youth Cup in 2011/12.

He suffered a broken leg before bouncing back to win the Under-21 Premier League title in 2013/14.

Last season he enjoyed a largely injury-free campaign last season, scoring six times for Chelsea Under 21s.
