After a less than eventful spell at Chelsea this season, Senegalese defender Papy Djilobdji moved to German club Werder Bremen on loan for the remainder of the season, and he's already left a mark on the team. Djilobdji's solid showings so far have made Werder Bremen CEO Thomas Eichin reiterate his club's interest on having the player back at the club next season.

"[Chelsea coach Paulo Ferreira] saw that [Djilobdji] gets along here really well and feels great too. We've lodged our interest with Chelsea. But we first have to do our homework."

Having Djilobdji at Bremen for another season wouldn't be a bad idea if no other club approach Chelsea with a good offer to buy him, or if Chelsea's new manager doesn't rate him highly enough to keep him in London. If he maintains his solid performances on the German pitches, the Blues could turn an once "desperate" last move in the transfer market into yet another profitable deal.
