Jonathan Russell is a midfielder who formerly played in Chelsea's academy.
Jonathan joined Chelsea as an Under-8.
It took Jonathan a little while to get going as a scholar, as various circumstances limited him to just nine appearances in his first full-time season with the club. He became a regular in the team in 2018-19, making 23 appearances in a mostly deep-lying midfield role. Upon graduation to the Development Squad in 2019-20, he moved further forward and often played as an attacking midfielder, a role in which he began to thrive, and scored three goals in 14 appearances under the management of Andy Myers.
A bright start to 2020-21 saw him join Accrington Stanley on loan in October, with the transfer window open later due to the Covid-19 pandemic. He impressed in spells there while also suffering through injuries, but left Chelsea at the end of his contract in July 2021, signing for Huddersfield Town.
Jonathan has no international representation to date.
