Adam Nditi (born 18 September 1994 in Zanzibar, Tanzania) is a left-back who formerly played for Chelsea.


Pre-Chelsea career

Adam joined Chelsea in 2008, shortly after arriving in the country from Tanzania, where he was born. He caught the eye playing local league football in Basingstoke and quickly impressed on trial at the Blues' academy.

Chelsea career

Adam made his Chelsea academy debut in 2010-11 against Tottenham Hotspur. He also played at left-back for much of the campaign despite having been used in more advanced roles for the younger age groups at the club.

His first goal came away to Norwich in April 2011 and he made his debut for the club's reserve team early in the 2011-12 season. However, it was in the Youth Team where he would play most of the season, continuing to make strides at left-back and progressing to over 50 Under-18 appearances in his career. He was a part of the 2011-12 FA Youth Cup winning team, starting in every match until the Second Leg of the Final against Blackburn Rovers, when he came on as a half-time substitute.

He made further strides in his career during the 2012-13 season, earning a regular berth in Dermot Drummy's Under-21 team whilst also featuring heavily in the Youth Cup and the NextGen Series. His late season involvement in both competitions, however, was hindered by an ankle injury. He also saw more time back in an advanced attacking role for the first time in a couple of seasons.

The good form of Kevin Wright meant that Adam struggled to find consistent playing time in the first half of the 2013-14 season, with opportunities to shine in the final year of his contract hard to come by. However, Wright spent the second half of the year injured and allowed Nditi the chance to return to the fold and feature in the Under-21 Premier League title success.

He was released at the end of his contract in June 2014.


Adam is yet to earn international representation.
