Portuguese club Vitoria have confirmed that they have signed Nicolas Tie from Chelsea on a permanent basis after spending three years at Stamford Bridge.

The young goalkeeper has put pen-to-paper on a five-year contract at the Portuguese club, with Vitoria announcing in a statement that they now hold ‘55% of his economic rights’.

Tie joined Chelsea’s academy in July 2017 from French lower league side Stade Poitevin FC, and signed his first professional contract at the club in July 2018.

However, the 19-year-old struggled to break into the first team picture after a series of injuries restricted him to just a handful of outings, report football.london.

The former Blues star represented the Ivory Coast at Under-23 level and has also received a full international call-up without being capped.
