This is the goalkeeper’s fifth loan since joining the club’s prestigious academy in 2018.

Woking manager Darren Sarll has sung the 20-year-old’s praises and hinted he could get a fair share of first-team football.

Sarll told the club’s official website: “Ethan is a very ambitious young man.

“The one thing you identify with him straight away, when you look at his journey, is how he always chose to take the uncomfortable path.

“There’s never a comfort zone you can relate to with this young player.

“He always chose to go out and play in very different environments from his academic background, so that has to be admired right away.

“There’s also a fierce ambition in him to really compete with Craig Ross – and like all positions at this football club – from day one everyone is level and has to push to earn the right to play in the clubs. matches.

“My environments are always based on meritocracy, and Ethan will be on the same terms as everyone else.


“I hope it’s a positive experience for him, there are a lot of ups and downs for young players – especially goalkeepers – but my conversations with him have been very, very good.”

Wady joined Chelsea from the North Carolina FC Academy after his family moved from the United States.

The American has since undergone several loan spells as he was shipped off to Stevenage, Tooting & Mitcham, Dartford and Hendon.
