Chelsea's academy structure is reportedly set to undergo major changes, led by Joe Shields and Sam Jewell. 

Director of football development Neil Bath and head of youth development Jim Fraser have left the club, signaling the dawn of a new era at Cobham.

The two men helped establish Chelsea's academy as a top producer of young talent with the likes of Reece James, Conor Gallagher and Mason Mount coming through the ranks.

Bath became the club's academy director in 2004 and was promoted two years ago. He worked closely with Fraser, who moved into his new role last year. 

The Guardian report that Bath approached Chelsea to discuss his future earlier this year and the club were open to handing him new responsibilities in the hope of keeping such an experienced figure.
