Michy Batshuayi signs for Dortmund on loan
Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has agreed to join Borussia Dortmund on a loan deal for the rest of the season.
Batshuayi, who joined Chelsea for £33 million from French Ligue 1 side Marseille during the summer of 201, made 32 league appearances, scored seven goals.
Chelsea reportedly held talks with Tottenham over a possible swap deal involving Spurs’ Spanish forward Fernando Llorente – but Batshuayi rejected the move as he wanted to be a first-choice striker.
In a statement Batshuayi said he was moving to the German club to help achieve his “big goal” of playing at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
“In order to reach my big goal, I want to play as much as I can and score many goals,” he said.
