Chelsea's longest-serving player confirms: I am leaving Stamford Bridge this summer


Chelsea goalkeeper Matej Delac says he is one of 15 players who will leave the club this summer.

The 24-year-old became the club's longest-serving player after John Terry left to join Aston Villa.

He never played a single game for the club and is now looking to complete a permanent transfer.

"Currently I am in London, and have been since July 1, training with another 15 players who are waiting for a loan or transfer," he told Goal.

"[Mario] Pasalic was also with us until recently but he has moved to the first team.

"It is true all of us players on loan are in a special Whatsapp group, where we regularly get information on who played best that matchday, who was especially good, who played how many minutes, who scored ... everything.

"But mostly people from the club point out the guy who was the best that weekend.

You know, I can't get a work permit in England, that is why I can't go on loan to an English club. We all dream of playing in the Premier League, but it is not possible without a work permit.

"I am 24 and I've been through a lot. Of course, at the age of 18 I was not ready for the biggest leagues. But I've learned a lot and have no regrets."
