Blues have today announced the loan signing of Australian creative midfielder Riley McGree.

The 21-year-old joins for the remainder of the season from soon to be MLS outfit Charlotte FC.

McGree is one of the rising stars in Australia and is highly rated after coming off the back of a stellar season at Adelaide in the A-League.

Scoring 13 goals in 26 appearances, he certainly knows where the goal is and will fit into Karanka’s formation perfectly.

However, McGree is more known for his incredible ‘Scorpion Kick’ which, not only shook the footballing world, but was also nominated for the FIFA Puskas Award for 2018.

What a hit!
