Despite being handed a two-window transfer band and even though deadline day has passed, transfer news keeps circulating at Chelsea. The Blues have announced that Michael Hector is set to depart the club.
Chelsea have announced that Michael Hector will join Fulham permanently at the start of the next transfer window. In the meantime, the 27-year-old will train with the Whites until the move can be officially completed.
Since moving to the Blues from Reading in the summer of 2015, the Jamaican international has been loaned out to four different clubs.
Upon signing for Chelsea, he instantly returned to Reading for the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign.
After that, he spent a season with Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt where he helped the German side reach the final of the DFB-Pokal.
Further loan moves to Championship sides followed. Hector spent the duration of the 2017/18 season on loan at Hull City before joining Sheffield Wednesday for another season-long loan last year.
During his four-year spell as a Chelsea player, the defender failed to make a single senior appearance.
The move will increase the funds available for Frank Lampard to spend once the Blues have served their transfer ban.
Selling a player with limited top-flight experience and an improbable chance of reaching the Blues’ first-team appears sensible.
Here’s how Chelsea supporters have reacted to the news:
Ahh Marina madness incoming next summer ????????????
