Official: Chelsea Announce Surprise Permanent Departure

Chelsea have announced yet another departure in this transfer window, with this latest one coming as a major surprise to many.

Official: Chelsea Confirm Big-Name Departure

On Sunday, the Blues confirmed that 21-year-old central defender Marca Guehi has been sold to Crystal Palace. 

The towering centre-back made only two senior appearances for Chelsea but was highly rated among fans, who thought he would have a big part to play at the club in the future. 

Guehi has been capped at all age groups in England's youth ranks, amassing an impressive 49 appearances in total since he first was introduced at U16 level. 

While he might not have a lot of experience at senior club level, the Ivory Coast-born defender has enjoyed two loan spells at Swansea City, playing 59 times across all competitions for the Welsh club. 

According to Transfermarkt, Guehi has joined Patrick Vieira's Palace for 10 million (R170 million) up front, although that fee could rise to 23.3 million (R397 million) in bonuses and add-ons.
