Crawley Town have completed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Conor Clifford on loan until 5 January.

The 21-year-old is yet to make his senior debut for the Blues but scored one goal in three appearances during a spell at Portsmouth this season.

Clifford has represented the Republic of Ireland at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level.

"Chelsea rate him very highly. He will add significantly to our options," Reds boss Richie Barker said.

"A lot of clubs were keen to sign him and we are delighted to have him with us."
