Football association to look into 15-year-old’s move to Chelsea

The Dutch football association is investigating the transfer of 15-year-old Feyenoord player Nathan Ake to Chelsea to see if a broker was involved, the NRC reports on Wednesday.

Licenced agent Daan Kramp was photographed with the youth at the Chelsea ground, awakening suspicions that he was involved in the move, the paper quotes website Voetbal International as saying.
The KNVB bans the involvement of brokers in the career of players aged under 16, as well as official transfers.
Ake’s move to London has not yet been officially announced by either club, the NRC says.
