According to Daily Mail, Premier League side Crystal Palace are close to completing the signing of defender Marc Guehi from Chelsea.

The 21 year old Chelsea academy graduate spent last season on loan at Swansea, helping them reach the play-off final last season.

Guehi will have his Crystal Palace medical today ahead of his £20million switch to Crystal Palace.

Chelsea were keen to keep retain Guehi but have been tempted by a Palace offer which they considered too good to turn down.

The Blues were keen to include a buyback clause in the deal but the two clubs have settled on a matching rights option for the Blues along with a sell-on clause should he move on from Palace.

Southampton, Norwich, West Ham, Brentford, Newcastle, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Monchengladbach and Stuttgart were all interested in the Chelsea centre-back.
