1126 Harvey Vale

Biography

Young midfielder Harvey Vale joined Hull City in August 2022 on a season long loan, having just signed a three year contract for Premier League parent club Chelsea. He made his City debut three weeks later in faraway Swansea.

Harvey James Vale was born in Haywards Heath in West Sussex and came through the junior ranks at Fulham before switching to Chelsea at the age of 13. He made his first team debut in a September 2020 EFL Trophy match against Walsall, then played in the FA Youth Cup Final in November 2020 that Chelsea lost to Manchester City. By the end of the season he was a regular starter and goalscorer for the Chelsea under-18 side and had broken into the under-23 side ahead of his 18th birthday.

Vale’s progress continued in the 2021/22 season, making the bench for three Premier League and four Champions League matches but remaining unused. He started a EFL Trophy tie against Exeter City in August 2021 then started the League Cup Quarter Final against Brentford in December 2021. He came off the subs’ bench in the League Cup Semi-Final first leg against Tottenham a month later and was used as substitute in three FA Cup ties in January and March 2022.

Vale was recognised by the England international setup as early as 2017 when he was selected for the under-15 side. He played for England’s under-16 and under-17 sides too, before making his debut at under-19 level in September 2021. In June 2022 he played in four of the five matches that culminated in England winning the European Under-19 Championship Finals tournament in Slovakia – in the final Harvey captained the side and assisted one of the three goals scored against their Israeli counterparts. In September 2022 Vale made his first appearance for England’s Under-20 side against Chile, a few days after his Hull City debut, adding a second cap four days later against Morocco.
