Martell Taylor-Crossdale
Martell Taylor-Crossdale

Having been linked with a move to Germany, Martell Taylor-Crossdale decided to travel across South-West London to join Championship side Fulham from Chelsea linking up with our very own Cody Drameh.

Martell was a prolific striker in Chelsea’s academy, top-scoring in the U18s Premier League with 21 goals in 2016/17, including two hat-tricks, and eight goals in his first five games. The powerful centre-forward was a key player as Chelsea’s U18s won a treble that season.

Martell has already made his debut for Fulham’s U23s with the clear ambition to be a part of the club’s first-team plans in the near future.
