Werder Bremen keen for Chelsea defender to stay

Werder Bremen are keen for Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji to stay on loan beyond the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has impressed for Werder Bremen since moving to the Bundesliga in January.

Werder CEO Thomas Eichin said: “If Chelsea want to sell him, we’d be without a chance, but should they want to get him more playing time first, we’d be in the mix.”

Djilobodji played just a single minute for the Blues since moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
