Papy Djilobodji: New Chelsea signing

Werder Bremen have signed Papy Djilobodji on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old joined the Blues from French club Nantes in the summer but managed only one minute of action for the Premier League champions.

Djilobodji’s signing was confirmed by Bremen – who finished the first half of the Bundesliga campaign in 16th position out of 18 – on Thursday afternoon.

Former Blues boss Jose Mourinho admitted the Senegal defender was signed on a recommendation. But despite Chelsea’s defensive lapses this season, neither Mourinho nor his successor Guus Hiddink, the caretaker boss, opted to field Djilobodji in a Premier League game.

He becomes the 32nd Chelsea player to have been on loan at some stage this season.
