Chelsea offering Danilo Pantic new long-term deal, but...

Danilo Pantic is set to reject a three-year contract extension with Chelsea.

The Serbian midfielder has not made an appearance for Chelsea since joining in 2015.

According to Serbian newspaper Telegraf, the 23-year-old wants to return to boyhood club Partizan Belgrade by forcing an early exit from Stamford Bridge.

Pantic is under contract until 2021 which includes a €3m.

But Partizan are not in a position to meet the fee, leaving Pantic in a tricky situation.

His last loan spell was with Hungarian outfit Fehervar before it was cut short in January.
