SNAPPED: Heracles Almelo 'announce' signing of Chelsea target Havertz

Heracles Almelo have jokingly 'unveiled' the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen.

German star Havertz has been consistently linked with a move to Chelsea this summer.

Sick of the speculation, Leverkusen manager Peter Bosz made an announcement after his side lost to Inter Milan in the Europa League on Monday.

"Yes, I can exclusively announce he'll play for Heracles Almelo," said the Dutchman, who previously coached Heracles in two separated spells.

And now the Dutch club have played up the statement by posting a photo of Havertz wearing their black and white jersey.
