Two young Chelsea players have joined Bristol Rovers on loan until the end of the season.

He is a three-time FA Youth Cup winner, a feat achieved by only six other players in history.
He has also helped Chelsea lift the UEFA Youth League twice.
Charlie Colkett, 19, is also a double UEFA Youth League winner, captaining the side in the 2016 tournament.
London born in September 1996, Charlie Colkett will be 20 years old in a few days time .
He has won the FA Youth Cup twice with Chelsea, in both 2014 and 2015.
He was an unused substitute for Chelsea in their Premier League game at Swansea City last season.
