The Premier League giants agreed a deal to sign Tie back in 2014, when he was just 13 years of age, but the highly-rated goalkeeper was unable to sign terms until this summer when he turned 16.
Tie officially joined Chelsea on Monday after returning to the club’s Cobham training base where he has traveled every summer for the past three years.
The former Poitiers shot-stopper shared photographs on his Twitter and Facebook profiles where can be seen proudly showing off his kit and signing on the dotted line with his new club.
