Yeovil Town have signed striker Adam Phillip from Premier League champions Chelsea on a month-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old revealed he spoke to former Glovers player Paul Terry and his England international brother, John, before moving to Huish Park.

"Paul is doing physio at [Chelsea's training ground] Cobham at the moment," Phillip told BBC Somerset.

"Both he and John Terry told me Yeovil was a good club to come to so I took their advice."

Phillip was discovered playing Sunday league football as a 15-year-old in Surrey.

"I want to help Yeovil get up the table and at the same time improve all aspects of my game."

He helped Chelsea reach the 2008 FA Youth Cup final, scoring three goals along the way.

This season he has bagged two goals in four games for Chelsea reserves.

"Yeovil said after a reserve-team match last week that they would like me to come down and I jumped at the chance," said Phillip.

"I want to help them get up the table and at the same time improve all aspects of my game."

And the former England Under-17 international is hoping to make his league debut when Yeovil face Charlton at the Valley on Saturday.

"Obviously I would love to start but I'm not sure how the manager [Terry Skiverton] sees it," he said.

"It's a very big game but having seen the boys train, there is a lot of talent and I'm sure we can get a result."

Yeovil are second from bottom of League One with 15 points from 16 games.
