Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon is excited about his chance at Malaga.

The 18-year-old Brazilian, who can play either as a striker or out wide, is not in the squad for tomorrow's Primera Division game at home to Celta Vigo but has been encouraged by a brief conversation with manager Manuel Pellegrini.

He told "This is a great time for Malaga. I decided to come here because Malaga is such a great club. I was told I'd be made very welcome and would be very happy here.

"I hope I get opportunities to play with the Blue and Whites. I spoke briefly to Pellegrini before he left for Barcelona, so I hope to get the chance to help the team out as much as I can."
