Michy Batshuayi passes Chelsea medical

Young Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi is yet another step closer to becoming a Chelsea player this afternoon, after passing his backflip-test medical with the club (conducted at Belgium's Euro 2016 base camp in Bordeaux).

Batshuayi has taken quite a few steps quite quickly towards making this transfer a reality over the past 24 hours.  From nothing to something faster than you can say SIGN ALL THE BELGIANS!

And speaking of signing, all that's left now is to sign on the dotted line.  Presumably that can happen sooner rather than later -- perhaps tonight already considering that the 22-year-old was excused from his previously scheduled press conference duties with the national team.

I'd expect we hear official confirmation from either Chelsea or Marseille, or both, very soon.
