Betis to take Musonda from Chelsea

Real Betis are expected to sign Belgium younger Charly Musonda Jr. on loan from Premier League champions Chelsea.

Estadio Deportivo reports the deal for the 19-year-old will be for the rest of the season and Betis won’t have the option to make the move permanent after that.

Musonda is a left-sided midfielder and the report notes Betis have been searching for a player in that position, sporting director Eduardo Macia having found a practical option in Musonda.

Rayo Vallecano were said to have been interested as well and interim Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink thought enough of Musonda to identify him as a first team player should Pedro Rodriguez have left his month.
