JOHN OBI MIKEL can’t go on temporary loan in his last six months.

Despite the Christmas festive holiday acts of goodwill it is clear that no team in Europe or abroad will be able to receive the talented gifted Chelsea Midfielder. This is due to per FIFA regulations which do not permit a player in the final six months of a current deal to go on loan to another team. This was exclusively revealed on the Nigerian football website, OWNGOALNIGERIA.COM

The Nigerian Skipper has indeed been rumoured to be heading out of Stamford Bridge due to being left out of the team this season by new Blues Manager ANTONIO CONTE. Own Goal Nigeria claim that MIKEL has not only been ‘frozen out’ by CONTE but is now being held by FIFA and not able to go out on loan in January.

With six months left on his contract, MIKEL can only possibly leave on a permanent transfer rather than a temporary loan. He has options to go outside the Premier League and Europe as far as China where teams such as Shanghai SIPG, Hebei Fortune and Shanghai Shenhua have all shown a keen interest.

JOHN OBI MIKEL, now Chelsea’s second longest serving player an already a Chelsea current legend in the making; has been believed to be considering staying in Europe to continue his career. His family is quite a young family and he wants to remain in Europe instead of making a decision to drastically move so far as China. However, the money earned in China will indeed be much more and maybe considered to be worth the move by some. The clubs in Europe which are an option include Marseille and Inter Milan. As with other players who have gone from the Premier League to other teams in Europe, MIKEL may end up gaining further success there. Players such as FABREGAS, MOSES, LUIS and even LAMPARD have gone away to other teams and came back to Stamford Bridge. On this occasion however, while MIKEL after eleven seasons at Chelsea has still not featured asks the question whether he will consider going now with the hope to return under different circumstances similar to his fellow Nigerian team mate, VICTOR MOSES.
