Chelsea Papy Djilobodji could be on his way to Turkish club Besiktas, according to report.
The Senegalese joined Chelsea last summer for a fee in the region of £2.7million, the defender has made just one substitute appearance for the blues this term in a league cup game. The defender is now set to leave Stamford bridge after failing to establish himself at the club.
The Daily Star claims that the Senegalese centre back is set to Join Besiktas on loan until the end of the season when the blues will search for a club to take him off their books permanently. The blues are keen to return for Everton’s John Stones and see Djilobodji as surplus to requirements.
Former Besiktas Director Sinan Engin when talking to Turkish football show ‘Beyaz futbol’ also claimed the Turkish club already has an agreement in place to sign the defender.
Djilobodji signed a four year contract with the blues in August but was left out of the blues 25 man squad for the Uefa Champions league, he is also yet to make his first appearance for the blues in the Premier league.
Jose Mourinho publicly claimed it wasn’t his interest to sign the defender. He joined from OGC Nice after impressing the West London club’s scouts.
A move to Besiktas in January will see the defender leave Chelsea just after six months.
