Chelsea FC Transfer Rumours: Dimitri Payet to reject Chelsea and stay in France.

New, comments

Chelsea's chase for a young, fast winger in this January transfer window could end in disappointment as Dimitri Payet has apparently rejected playing at Stamford Bridge in order to stay in France, preferring a move instead to Paris St-Germain.

The club had put in a bid of around for £7m for the 23 year old French international but his preference seems to be to stay in his home country and play in France's Ligue 1.

The result could be that efforts are stepped up from Chelsea to try and secure Pedro Leon from Real Madrid on loan, though with time running out Chelsea are increasingly focused on getting the Fernando Torres deal done aside from anything else.
