Deal close: Chelsea to complete defensive transfer today

Papy DjilobodjiChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern were here for when the door’s opened first thing this morning, as they quickly gathered around the TV sets and awaited imminent transfer news.

The Daily Express state defensive flop Papy Djilobodji will seal a loan switch to Bundesliga strugglers Werder Bremen today, after undergoing a medical with the German side.

Senegalese international Djilobodji was a surprise deadline day acquisition for the Blues but it has proved to be another awful signing, as the centre-back has played just one minute of football for the Blues; coming on as a late substitute in the League Cup clash with Walsall.

Chelsea are ready to offload the defensive player, who cost £2.7m from Nantes in the summer, and will push on with their own transfer business as the Blues look to fight back from an atrocious campaign thus far.

Guus Hiddink’s side sit just four points above the relegation spots heading into this weekend’s clash with top of the table Arsenal, in a fierce London derby that will have a drastic impact on both halves of the Premier League standings.

Chelsea fans, how crucial are the final ten days of the transfer window? Let us know in the comments below!
