Chelsea captain Gary Cahill will be allowed to leave Chelsea in the course of the January transfer window.

According to The Guardian’s Dominic Fifield, the Stamford Bridge outfit will allow the English defender to leave on loan in January as he seeks first-team football.

This decision is a gesture of appreciation from Chelsea to the player for his significant contributions to the club when he was a regular.

Cahill joined Chelsea from Bolton in January 2012 and has been a mainstay in the side until recent seasons.

In his time at Chelsea, he has won 6 trophies, including 2 Premier League titles, 1 Europa League Trophy and the UEFA Champions League in 2012.

He has also gotten 61 caps for the Three Lions. However, his playing chances at Stamford Bridge has waned with the likes of Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, and Cesar Azpilicueta, all ahead of him in the pecking order.

Reports suggest that Man United’s Jose Mourinho and newly appointed Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri are interested in signing Cahill.
