Yeovil Town have made their tenth signing of the 2012-13 season. He is 19 year old Rohan Ince, who is on the books of Premier League side Chelsea and is the second cousin of Blackpool winger Thomas Ince, and thus also related to former England star Paul Ince.
Rohan was born in Whitechapel on November 8th 1992 and is a player who can operate in both defence and midfield - either as a central defender or a defensive midfielder. He has yet to make a Chelsea first team appearance, but became a regular in their Reserve Team side during the 2011-12 season, having made his debut at that level two seasons previously. He has also been representing Chelsea at Under-18 level.
Rohan has seen his career progress thwarted somewhat during the last few seasons. He missed the first half of the 2009-10 season after he suffered a serious knee injury that put him out until January. The following season saw a similar problem develop develop, whilst in 2011-12 some lesser injuries saw him spend time on the treatment table. In all three seasons, he came back strongly during the second half of the season, but obviously his progression was stalled somewhat during those years.
He is under contract at Stamford Bridge until the end of the 2012-13 season. Rohan stands at 6'4" and so adds plenty of height to the team. He has signed a six month loan at Huish Park.
Update: Chelsea's website indicates that the loan deal runs until January 12th 2013.
