Chelsea midfielder Nathan is close to joining Portuguese club Belenenses on loan, according to O Jogo.

The former Brazilian Under 20 international had been on loan at Ligue One side Amiens, but failed to make a single start during his six months in France.

Belenenses play in the top flight in Portugal, currently sitting eleventh in the Primeira Liga table, and Nathan will be hoping to rekindle his career whilst playing for his new club.

The winger was signed by the Blues from Atletico Paranaense in 2015 for £3.6m, but he has never played for the club. He was loaned out to feeder side Vitesse for two seasons before returning to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Nathan had only managed three appearances for Amiens this campaign, and O Jogo report he is likely to be announced as a new signing by Belenenses today, after having arrived in Portugal to finalise his loan switch.
