Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji all set to end his short and bizarre career at the club as Bundesliga side Stuttgart are interested to sign him, according to a report from French publication L’Equipe.

The 26-year-old Senegalese defender joined Chelsea on transfer deadline day for £2.25m back in the summer and given a 3-year contract after failing to land John Stones, but after bringing him in the then manager Jose Mourinho surprisingly distanced himself from the new Blues player by claiming that the idea to sign the player was not his preferred one.

And because of the manager’s ignorance, Djilobodji hasn’t been able to settle into Premier League life, and has failed to play any league matches since making the move to west London.

His only appearance for Chelsea was off the bench in the last minute against Walsall in a Capital One Cup clash. L’Equipe now suggests Djilobodji is supposed to be loaned to the Bundesliga club for 18 months.

He was also linked with a possible move to Turkish giants Besiktas, but it now looks like the German club are leading the race.

His spell at Stamford Bridge will not be looked as a memorable one when he departs, and many will even question, what he was doing at Chelsea to begin with.

Chelsea spent most of the summer window looking for some defensive help, but didn’t taste success in landing any of their primary targets, forcing Mourinho to sign Papy Djiobodji from Nantes instead. The Defender played 171 matches for French side Nantes scoring 9 goals in his 5 years spell there since joining Nantes in 2010. Djilobodji’s existence continued to be a legitimate question among the supporters questioning Chelsea’s transfer policy, it was quite obvious that the Blues once again hunt for several of their preferred targets in the January transfer window.
