Ugbo, who is an England youth international, will spend the whole of the 2017-2018 season on loan at The Reds.

The 18-year-old has scored 60 goals for the youth teams of Chelsea in the last three seasons, and this led to several teams in the Championship and Eredivisie interested in signing him on loan.

Wolves, Leeds United, Bristol City and Vitesse were credited with an interest in signing Ugbo before Barnsley won the race for his services.

Ike Ugbo has been on the books of Chelsea for more than eight years.
