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.

@thomo on what planet is Mikel "serviceable"? All he does is make 2 meter passes as soon as he gets the ball and gives away possession at crucial times. I remained utterly baffled why he is still at the club.

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
