Chelsea have announced that midfielder Romeo Lavia will miss the rest of the 2023/24 campaign due to issues around injury recovery.

Lavia sustained a major thigh injury during a match against Crystal Palace in December, and recent medical evaluations have confirmed that he will be unable to return to action this season.

In the statement released by Chelsea on Wednesday, the club expressed regret over Lavia’s prolonged absence.

“Midfielder Romeo Lavia is to unfortunately miss the remainder of our 2023-24 campaign following a setback in his recovery,” the statement read.

The news comes as a blow to both Chelsea and the player who is yet to make any impact in the club since joining from Southampton last summer.

Chelsea completed the signing of the midfielder in August 2023 on an initial seven-year contract.
