Kakuta keen to exit Chelsea

On-loan winger Gael Kakuta has delivered a scathing assessment of Chelsea’s transfer policy, claiming the Blues’ squad is simply too big and that he will seek a permanent move away from Stamford Bridge.

Kakuta is currently plying his trade in the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem having joined Chelsea in 2009. However, his stint in the Netherlands is just the latest in a string of loan deals which have seen him play at Fulham, Bolton and Dijon in his homeland.

The ongoing changes at Chelsea, Kakuta says, have now vanquished his desire to return to the club.

"I don’t dream about Chelsea any more - I used to, now I know better," Kakuta is quoted as saying in The Sun newspaper.

"I hope I can join a club like Vitesse next season, where I can play every week.

"Chelsea have far too many players. At my age I need to play regularly but if I go back I’ll just get 10 minutes a month and I don’t want that."

The 21-year-old’s current loan period expires at the end of this season.
