Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi joins LaLiga side Valencia on season-long loan deal

Michy Batshuayi has joined Valencia on loan from Chelsea.

The Belgian striker will spend the entire 2018/19 season with the Spanish side.

Batshuayi joined Chelsea from Marseille for a fee of £33million in 2016, but has struggled to make a major impact at Stamford Bridge.

He has scored just seven goals in 32 Premier League appearances and was loaned for Borussia Dortmund in


The 24-year-old made an excellent early impression with Dortmund, netting seven times in ten appearances, before an ankle injury cut short this season.

He returned to Chelsea training last week after playing for Belgium at the World, but was told by manager Maurizio Sarri he could move on this summer, with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud ahead of him in the pecking order.

Dortmund were understood to be keen to re-sign Batshuayi, but he has now agreed to head to Spain.

A Valencia statement read: “Valencia CF have reached this Friday an agreement with Chelsea FC for the transfer of Michy Batshuayi until the end of this season.”
