DONE DEAL: Atsu joins Malaga on loan
EPL champions Chelsea have confirmed that Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu has joined Malaga on loan until the end of the season.
Atsu, 24, who played for Everton last year, spent the first half of the 2015-16 campaign with Bournemouth but failed to make any Premier League appearances. He was restricted to only two starts in the Capital One Cup.

Malaga beat off competition from Levante and Rayo Vallencano and their success is believed to be down to the amount of first-team football they are offering the 24-year-old.
A statement published on Chelsea’s official website on Monday night revealed Atsu had agreed to “continue his development” with Primera Division side Malaga.
