Official: Chelsea goalkeeper rejoins FK Sarajevo on loan

WAGNH's 2015/16 Season Preview

For the third straight summer, Matej Delac has extended his Chelsea contract by another year (now set to expire in summer 2017).  And for the third straight season, the soon-to-be 23-year-old (just a few months younger than Courtois) going to go play for FK Sarajevo in the Bosnian top division.

Unlike in 2012-13 (when he won the Cup with them) and last season (when they won the league title), he will be there from the start of the season rather than just for the second half of the year.

"I'm happy here, because we negotiated a month and a half and that was the desire of the club, as well as mine, but it was a problem with the settlements. I'm sorry I did not come before, primarily for European matches."

There is no word on what these "settlements" may have ended up being, but presumably there's some loan fee involved.  In any case, good luck to Delaj and the champions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
