German side Werder Bremen are reportedly closing in on a deal for Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji, Sky Sports claims.
The 27-year old has played just one minute of football for the Blues – a late substitute appearance in the Capital One Cup against Walsall.
Despite only making his £4 million move from French side Nantes late last summer, it appears Djilobodji could be on the move after just five months having failed to break into either Jose Mourinho’s or Guus Hiddink’s side.
It appears Bremen, who sit just two points off the bottom of the Bundesliga in 16th, are keen to take Djilobodji on loan until the end of the season.
Although Chelsea refused to comment, Bremen chief executive Thomas Eichin told Bild: “We are in negotiations.”
