Dujon Sterling is a defender currently playing in Chelsea's Academy team.


Pre-Chelsea career

Dujon joined Chelsea as an Under-8.

Chelsea career

Dujon made his Under-19 debut in the UEFA Youth League fixture against Sporting CP in December 2014 whilst still an Under-15. He made several more appearances later in the season and stood out despite being the youngest player on the pitch on each occasion. Still a schoolboy in 2015-16, he exploded into recognition by not only becoming a regular but by making match-winning performances en route to Chelsea's second UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup double in succession. His goals in the Semi Final and the Final of the latter displayed his versatility, often playing as a second striker and proving a constant menace anywhere on the right side of the pitch.

2016-17 picked up where the previous season finished. Now a regular at Development Squad level despite starting the season as a 16 year-old, he played in almost every outfield position over the course of the season, helping the Under-18s to a domestic treble, standing out against senior professionals in the EFL Trophy, and penning a maiden professional contract upon his 17th birthday in October. For the second season in a row he scored in both the Semi Final and Final of the FA Youth Cup to add a second consecutive winners' medal to his collection.


Dujon has represented England up to Under-19 level and represented them at the 2016 European Under-17 Championships in Azerbaijan.
