Leeds target Romain Perraud admits being Chelsea fan

Brest fullback Romain Perraud is being watched by Leeds United.

The defender has shone this season and is a summer target for Leeds.

However, Perraud says he's a fan of Chelsea: "It's true. I became a big fan of Chelsea when I was traveling to London with my father and my grandmother.

"The stadium was full and my father had managed to buy tickets to Stamford Bridge on the black market! I must have been between 9 and 11 years old, it was Chelsea vs Sunderland, a 5-0 victory.

"Since then, I have said to myself that I was going to follow this team and I still follow it today. It is my favorite team."
