Official: Chelsea sign Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji

Senegal defender Papy Djilobodji has signed a four-year deal with Chelsea, Nantes have announced.

 

The Premier League champions made their move for the 27-year-old after seeing their overtures for Everton’s John Stones repeatedly rebuffed.

Chelsea have conceded nine goals in four games in accruing four points to sit eight adrift of leaders Manchester City.
