The 18-year-old has now been sent on loan to Bundesliga side Leipzig to acquire more experience which will afford him the chance to compete for starting shirt at Chelsea.
Ampadu can play n either defence or midfield positions and will have a chance to taste European football when his new club battle to qualify for Champions League next term.
Frank Lampard rates the teenager highly, and he spoke last week about the need for Ampadu to get regular action over the upcoming campaign.
The Blues boss said: "I tried to sign Ethan on loan at Derby last year so I’m a big fan, but with the minutes he played last year, in the interest of Ethan and of Chelsea, the idea he can play a lot of games somewhere could be good for him.
"I really wanted to work with Ethan this year. That’s a slight disappointment, but it’s to benefit him. In midfield and defence we have a lot of quality, so each player is a case by case."
