Dutch members of ­parliament are calling for an investigation into ­Chelsea’s signing of ­wonderboy Nathan Ake. The brilliant Feyenoord youngster, who plays at centre-back or in midfield, is due to move to Stamford Bridge on February 18, his 16th birthday. Feyenoord warned Chelsea last year that they were breaking FIFA regulations. The Dutch club’s lawyer, Joris van Benthem, confirmed: “We pointed out to Chelsea the FIFA rules both verbally and in writing.â€

Feyenoord insist Chelsea were in breach of the regulations by twice inviting the youngster, and his agent Daan Kramp, to London. In fact, young Ake posted messages on the internet detailing his trips to England. Before Christmas he revealed he was taking a look at Chelsea’s set-up. A few days later he returned to London. Now Dutch MP’s want Edith Schippers, their minister of sport, to investigate Ake’s defection. Tjeerd Dekken MP said: “We are absolutely shocked. We have contacted the minister of Sport. This is scandalous trafficking of kids.†Reports in Holland last night suggested that Chelsea have offered Feyenoord £750,000 as compensation for losing the player and in lieu of training expenses.

The Dutch football association is investigating the transfer of 15-year-old Feyenoord player Nathan Ake to Chelsea to see if a broker was involved, the NRC reports on Wednesday. Licenced agent Daan Kramp was photographed with the youth at the Chelsea ground, awakening suspicions that he was involved in the move, the paper quotes website Voetbal International as saying. The KNVB bans the involvement of brokers in the career of players aged under 16, as well as official transfers. Ake’s move to London has not yet been officially announced by either club, the NRC says.
