Gaël Kakuta to complete Sevilla deal on Thursday

Chelsea’s Frenchman Gaël Kakuta will complete a move to La Liga side Sevilla on Thursday, subject to a medical.

A deal was a little more complicated than the Spanish side would have liked, with Olympiakos, Aston Villa, St Étienne and AC Milan having tried at several points to both entice the player their way but also to outbid Sevilla’s €3.5m offer for the player, according to our colleagues at Foot Mercato.

Anyhow, Sevilla have staved off the competition and barring an extraordinary U-turn in events, Kakuta will sign the dotted line before the week is out.
