Chelsea are in talks to sign Dylan Williams from Derby County, The Athletic understands.

Derby head coach Wayne Rooney confirmed earlier on Friday that a Premier League club had made a transfer offer for the 18-year-old full-back, which had been accepted.

The size of that offer was not made public, however, with administrators Quantuma in charge of the financially-stricken Championship club’s transfer business.

“We have agreed a fee with a Premier League club for Dylan Williams,” Rooney said at his press conference on Friday.

“I couldn't stand in the way of his opportunity.”

It is understood that Chelsea are the club to have made an offer for Williams, with the side planning to involve him in their Under-23 side should they complete his signing this month.

Williams has made eight appearances for Derby this season.

Derby are 23rd in the Championship, eight points off safety. They have had 21 points deducted this season.
