Ruben Sammut is a midfielder currently playing in Chelsea's academy team.
Ruben joined Chelsea at Under-8 level.
Ruben made his Under-18 debut as an Under-15 in March 2013 and was something of a regular in 2013-14, training with the academy on a full-time basis as part of the early scholarship programme. He demonstrated his versatility by lining up at right-back on occasion and proved an effective, level-headed experience in an increasingly younger team late in the season.
He was one of the leading Under-18 appearance makers throughout 2014-15, often captaining the youth team and working his way very deservedly into the team for the decisive rounds of the FA Youth Cup. He chipped in with a few appearances en route to a double success in the UEFA Youth League and capped a very fine season with Under-21 appearances to close things out.
That trend continued in 2015-16 as he became a double winner again, playing a feature role in the Youth Cup and adding a few outings in the UEFA Youth League but was generally an Under-18 mainstay before graduating to Under-21 football under Adi Viveash at the end of the year, playing six times. That progress continued in 2016-17, where he played more often than not, taking over the captaincy from Fankaty Dabo in the second half of the season when the young full-back went on loan, whilst also making his Scotland Under-21 debut.
Ruben has been capped by Scotland up to Under-21 level, but is also eligible for England and Malta.
