Chelsea defender still looking for loan move

Chelsea defender Malang Sarr was left in limbo after a loan move to Bundesliga side Greuther Furth fell through.

The 22-year-old had even travelled to Germany to complete his medical and sign the paperwork with the Bundesliga club, but it proved to be all for nothing as the two clubs failed to reach an agreement on the terms of the move, with the Frenchman’s high wage demands a major sticking point.

Now it is hoped that a loan to either Turkey or Russia can be secured for Sarr.

The transfer window in both those countries are still open  and although there are other leagues theoretically available to him, they are the ones with clubs most likely to be able to afford his salary.

Sarr snapped him up last summer after his contract with Nice expired, and sent him on loan to Porto last season.  However, he made only five league starts for the Portuguese club, and has trained with a separate loan group at Chelsea’s training facility in Cobham in recent weeks.
