Chelsea prospect Mario Pasalic has joined Elche on-loan for the coming season.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who was named in Croatia's provisional 30-man World Cup squad but did not make it to Brazil, joined Chelsea from Hajduk Split earlier this month but has been immediately sent out on loan.

Elche confirmed on their website that Pasalic has already passed his medical with the Primera Division club and begun training with his new team-mates.
