DONE DEAL: Chelsea defender Sarr signs with Porto on loan

Chelsea defender Malang Sarr has joined Porto on a season-long loan.

Sarr, 21, signed for Chelsea this summer after his contract expired at Nice and was always expected to leave on loan.

"I am very excited," Sarr told Porto's website. "It was an opportunity I was looking for, so I am grateful and happy to be here. I feel prepared to start helping the team to achieve their goals.

"FC Porto is the best club in Portugal, it is a very big club with talented players and a history that, for me, is very important. I know this story, it's a proud club and that's what I hope to find, a team that fights and with a good mentality.

"I know that Porto is an ambitious club and I also came for that. I'm looking forward to the competition, big games, the Champions League and helping the club and the team to win another league title.

"The Porto fans are very good. I know that they have been helping the team as much as possible and that they want to get back to the stadiums as soon as possible. But for now, I know that they will continue to support us to help us get where we want to be."
