The England left-back has failed to dislodge Ashley Bridge from the spot and now sees his future elsewhere.
Megabucks Manchester City see the former Southampton man as the perfect left-back and a £13m four-year deal is on the table.
Chelsea will look to sign CSKA Moscow's Yuri Zhirkov as Bridge's replacement.
Cheers Wayne, all the best.
