Chelsea Just Reached an Agreement over Winger as Player is Already in Country, Will Start Training with New Teammates this Week

Christian Atsu

Chelsea winger Christian Atsu has confirmed his loan move to La Liga club Levante. The 24-year-old spent the first part of the season on loan at Premier League club Bournemouth, but it turned out to be a failure as the player failed to make a single league appearance.

“I told the players (Chelsea) that I would be going to Levante. It’s a new challenge, and I am going to work hard there,” Atsu told BBC on Sunday.

“I spoke with the coach (Levante), and I believe if I work hard I would be given a chance.”

However, uncertainties still remain over his destination as Sky Sports have claimed that La Liga club Malaga are set to hijack the deal for the player and the player also refused to confirm his destination to Ghanaian media outlets on Sunday.

He has previously spent loan spells at Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem and Everton.
