Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu has undergone a medical ahead of a potential loan move to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, according to Sky in Germany.
The 18-year-old has made one Premier League appearance for Chelsea and played in 11 further FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa League matches for the club.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said earlier this week he wanted Ampadu to go out on loan to gain more first-team experience, after he was not included in the Premier League club's pre-season tour of Japan in anticipation of a move.

The midfielder would take part in the growing contingent of young British talent seeking fortune in the German top flight, including the likes of Jadon Sancho, Ademola Lookman, Rabbi Matondo, Reiss Nelson, Reece Oxford and more.
Ampadu would join Lookman at RB Leipzig, after the Bundesliga club agreed a deal worth up to £22.5m with Everton for the transfer of the 21-year-old, Sky Sports News understands.
