Chelsea transfer news: Drogba deal close, Pastore rules out move

Didier Drogba Crowd

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea are set to re-sign club legend Didier Drogba on a one-year contract.

Reports in France claim the deal could be announced at some point this week.

Drogba is a free agent after he left Galatasaray and has been tipped to take up a part coaching role at the club.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore will not be moving this summer.

The £25 million rated star has been suggested as a target for the Blues but insists he will remain a PSG player.

“Is Juventus interested in Pastore? No one has called me but I can confirm that Pastore will remain at PSG,” his agent Marcelo Simonian told TMW.

Kenneth Omeruo has joined Championship club Middlesbrough on loan for a second season.

The 20-year-old has agreed to spend another campaign in the North East with his first team chances at the Blues looking slim.

Middlesbrough are thought to be delighted with the way he played last season at the club.
