Chelsea are reported to have made a decision on the future of defender Gary Cahill as he has spent six seasons with the club.

According to reports, the player will be allowed to leave the club on loan in the winter transfer window opening in January so as to have him enjoy regular football elsewhere.

The former England international’s contract with the Chelsea will come to an end by next summer and there is no assurance he will be handed a new deal with manager Maurizio Sarri hinting that Cahill is no longer in his plans.

The 32-year-old has enjoyed his stay with West London club and has been helpful within the last six years having won two Premier League titles, FA Cup, a Champions League and a Europa League to mark a successful career at the club.

Manager Sarri has also expressed his delight and respect for the former international because of his influence at the club and in the dressing room but noted that he can no longer have the same playing time at the club due to the presence of Cesar Azpilicueta who is much younger and more effective.

Meanwhile, Cahill’s next destination will soon be made public but he is believed to remain in England and not play abroad as he nears retirement.
