Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji joins Werder Bremen on loan

Last updated : 21 January 2016

The 27-year-old joined the Blues from French club Nantes in the summer but managed only one minute of action for the Premier League champions.

Djilobodji's signing was confirmed by Bremen - who finished the first half of the Bundesliga campaign in 16th position out of 18 - on Thursday afternoon.

Former Blues boss Jose Mourinho admitted the Senegal defender was signed on a recommendation

But despite Chelsea's defensive lapses this season, neither Mourinho nor his successor Guus Hiddink, the caretaker boss, opted to field Djilobodji in a Premier League game

He becomes the 32nd Chelsea player to have been on loan at some stage this season
