Date of birth




Jon Russell joined Town's B Team ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The 20-year-old arrives in West Yorkshire as a free agent, having ended a 13-year stint with European Champions Chelsea at the conclusion of last season.

He’s put pen-to-paper on a contract running until the summer of 2023, at which point we have the option of a further year’s extension.

Standing at 6’ 4” tall, London-born Jon is a central midfield player who made 26 appearances on loan at Sky Bet League 1 side Accrington Stanley last season, scoring twice. That experience added to five previous senior appearances for Chelsea’s Under-23 side in what is now known as the Papa John’s Trophy.
