Official: Chelsea loan Christian Atsu to Malaga

New, comments

UPDATE: And now it's official.

It's not been confirmed by either team yet, but it looks like Christian Atsu's next loan destination is set.  Who I'm assuming to be an adviser or PR person tweeted the following picture a few hours ago.

Atsu spent the first half of the season being mostly injured while on loan at AFC Bournemouth.  The 24-year-old had been linked with a few teams in Spain as potential destinations for the second half of the season, and while it looked like Levante might win the race, it would appear that they were pipped to the prize by Malaga.

Hopefully Atsu does a little bit better than our previous loanee on the Andalusian coast.  Lucas Piazon accumulated a little under 500 minutes (14 appearances but only 4 starts) there back in 2013.
