Romeu, who has made 33 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club from Barcelona in the summer of 2011, was recently handed a new three-year deal by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old holding midfielder spent last season on loan with La Liga side Valencia, but will now have his first taste of Bundesliga action during the 2014/15 season.

A statement on Chelsea’s website read: “Oriol Romeu has today (Monday) joined Stuttgart on a season-long loan.

Stuttgart coach Armin Veh said: "Romeu has collected some experience in two top European leagues despite his young age and will help Stuttgart as it seeks to improve on last season's disappointing showing."
                  
Veh, who led Stuttgart to the Bundesliga title in 2007, returned to the club this summer after a season in which they used three coaches and narrowly avoided relegation.

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
