11 January 2019 : First January Transfer Window Arrival Sees Chelsea Academy Player Signed Up
Yeovil Town have made their first signing of the January transfer window. They have brought in Chelsea defender Joshua Grant on a half-season loan, ahead of their League Two trip to Mansfield Town. He generally plays as a centre-back but can also operate as a right-back. His contract with Chelsea expires at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Born on October 11th 1998 (aged 20 years old) in London, he has been on Chelsea's books since the Under-8s level and made 30 appearances for their Under-19s and Development Squad last season. He signed his first professional contract with the club in October 2015 and even spent the final month or two of the 2017-18 campaign training with Chelsea's first team, although has not got near a first team matchday squad. Manager Darren Way has said of his arrival:

"Josh is powerful, athletic and has a good personality. This is a great opportunity for him to get regular first-team football and I'm pleased to have brought him in."

Joshua has also made nine appearances for Chelsea's Under-21s in the EFL Trophy, including the October 2017 match at Huish Park which saw him play a full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw. His most recent appearance was in the EFL Trophy on Wednesday evening, in Chelsea's 1-3 home defeat against Peterborough United. His loan spell with the Glovers will keep him at the club until the end of the 2018-19 season. He will wear the No.21 shirt during his time at Huish Park.
