Jamaican footballer Michael Hector has signed a a five-year-contract with English Premier League champions Chelsea for a sum of £4.5m.

Hector, who was born in England, but chose to represent Jamaica at an international level, is much travelled at 23-years-old having had 11 loan spells since joining Reading in 2009.  The player, however, impressed after signing a new three-year deal last season.

Crystal Palace registered an interest in the Jamaica international on Tuesday morning, but the Blues have launched a late bid after Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo scouted him in recent weeks.  The player is expected to be loaned back out to Reading.
