Meanwhile, Chelsea have also confirmed that 27-year-old defender Michael Hector has formally completed his permanent move to Fulham which was first announced back in September. He has been training with our neighbours since then and made his debut for them in the FA Cup at the weekend when they beat Aston Villa.

Hector spent last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and made 39 appearances as the Owls finished 12th in the second tier.
