Nigeria’s Mikel Obi Set To Leave Chelsea

Super Eagles of Nigeria midfielder, John Obi Mikel may be forced to leave Chelsea during the January window following lack of playing time under coach Jose Mourinho.

Mikel, has not featured for the Blues since his only Premier League start of the season and

his agent John Shittu revealed they will wait and see when it comes to his Chelsea future, with the transfer window set to open in just over a month.

“The player had offers to move at the beginning of the season, but Chelsea refused to sell because they probably have him in their plans.”

“Now we have to wait and see what happens.”

The 28-year-old was the subject of a number of transfer offers in the summer but stayed at Stamford Bridge, his home since arriving back in 2006. But he has found his route to regular football blocked by the likes of Ramires and Nemanja Matic and his last appearance was a start against Liverpool in late October.
