Chelsea star Malouda in France to complete Dijon investment

Chelsea star Florent Malouda was in France yesterday wrapping up his deal with Dijon.

The Sunday Mirror says Malouda has bought a stake in French club Dijon.

The Burgundy-based outfit has just won a first-ever promotion to Ligue 1 and Malouda's younger brother Lesly plays for them.

The 30-year-old Blues ace announced his investment plans at Dijon's town hall yesterday.

Alex Hayes, Malouda's agent, said: "This is a partnership based on youth development, and Florent hopes to give Dijon the benefit of his experience.

"But he won't be part of the club's day-to-day running for now."

French international Malouda is under contract with Chelsea until 2013.
