Malouda set to sign for Chelsea today

Florent Malouda is expected to sign for Chelsea today after leaving Lyon's preseason training camp.

France's player of the year was driven away by a Lyon staff member from the Alpine ski resort of Tignes where Lyon are preparing for their bid to win a seventh consecutive Ligue 1 title.

Reports in the French press suggest Chelsea have lodged an 18.5million euros bid (£12.5million) for the 27-year-old, who was a member of France's World Cup final team last summer.

Last week, Malouda revealed he wanted to join Chelsea.
