London: Chelsea have apologised "profusely" to former striker Gary Johnson over his treatment as a youth team player as the number of clubs embroiled in the child sex abuse scandal reportedly climbed to 55.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Chelsea said it was clear Mr Johnson had "suffered unacceptably" and that it had "no desire to hide any historic abuse we uncover from view".

The club said an external review would examine whether they should have carried out "a more detailed investigation" when the allegations first came to light and why they did not report them to the Football Association and Premier League.
