Chelsea will reward Gary Cahill for his six years of service to the club by allowing him to leave on loan in January which will effectively bring an end to his career for the club
Gary Cahill is out of contract at the end of the season and will leave on a free transfer, but The Blues will take the unusual step of letting him go on loan before then in the next transfer window.
Chelsea normally insists all players sign new contracts before being allowed to leave on loan, but the club is willing to make an exception for The former England International because of his achievements.
Cahill joined Chelsea from Bolton for £7m in January 2012. he is capped 61 times for England, has won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup, a Champions League and a Europa League over a glittering career at the club.
Despite remaining the captain of the team, the 32-year-old has dropped down the pecking order since Maurizio Sarri’s arrival as head coach and was not even on the substitutes’ bench for the draw with Everton.
