Chelsea central defender Michael Hector is in talks over a permanent move to Sheffield Wednesday where he spent last season on loan, according to Daily Mail.

The 27 year old has failed to make a single first-team appearance for Chelsea since signing from Reading in 2015 for £4million.

Since signing from Reading in 2015, Hector has spent time on loan at Reading, Eintracht Frankfurt, Hull and Sheffield Wednesday, where he made 39 appearances last season.

Daily Mail also claim Sheffield Wednesday aren’t the only club interested in the London-born Jamaica international. If Hector fails to agree personal terms with Sheffield Wednesday, fellow Championship clubs Fulham and Bristol City have expressed interest have expressed interest in signing the 27 year old.

Hector has one year remaining on his contract at Chelsea.

Hector isn’t the only Chelsea centre-back pushing to leave the club this summer. Nigerian international Kenneth Omeruo is also pushing to leave the club on a permanent deal this summer after also failing to make a single appearance for the first-team.

Omeruo spent time on loan at Leganes last season and he wants to join the La Liga side on a permanent deal.

Leganes have reportedly made an initial offer of €4.5m, although that is currently short of what the Blues are asking for the defender.

Omeruo recently revealed his desire to leave Chelsea permanently.

“I think now’s the time for me to leave, to find a place, to be my own man,” he said.

“I’m married with a baby now, so I need stability. Chelsea have done amazingly for me, and for my family as well, but it’s time for me to reach my potential and get where I think I deserve to be.”
