Transfer news LIVE: Mohamed Salah hint on future, Chelsea lining up striker


Dor closed

Ian Maatsen has agreed to join Borussia Dortmund on loan, according to reports.

However, the left-back is unable to sign for his new club with Chelsea currently banned from offloading him.

Dortmund have a £2million deal in place to sign Maatsen on loan until the end of the season.

Reports suggest the player will pen a new contract at Stamford Bridge to put Chelsea in a strong negotiating position amid talk of a permanent move in the summer.

But Maatsen’s switch this month is on hold due to a little-known transfer rule.

Clubs are allowed to loan out up to seven players to foreign sides at one time. Chelsea have already hit the maximum amount and they now must rip up a current deal to see Maatsen leave.

Romelu Lukaku, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Angelo Gabriel, Hakim Ziyech, David Datro Fofana, Gabriel Slonina and Diego Moriera are all on loan with clubs abroad.

There has been rumours that Ziyech could see his spell end with Galatasaray after struggling with injuries and form.

Meanwhile, Moriera has found it tough to get minutes at Lyon and is another recall option.

Speculation also suggests that Fofana may see his time end at Union Berlin – but he would then be sent back out on loan to Sevilla.
