Drenthe in London to close Chelsea deal

Chelsea are expected to wrap up the signing of Feyenoord wing-back Roysten Drenthe this week.

The People says the star of Holland's Under-21 triumph in the European Championship has flown in to sort out personal terms ahead of a £4million move from Feyenoord.

Drenthe, plus his advisers, jetted in to push through the transfer before rivals could react as the Blues moved fast following rumours that Real Madrid were keen.

Drenthe wants to try to crack Jose Mourinho's side this season, although there is some thinking at Stamford Bridge that he could be sent back to Feyenoord for a year.

However, that is a minority view as Drenthe can compete with Arjen Robben for a game on the left-wing and also cover in other areas, where his skill and speed will be a certain asset.
