Sahar closes in on Espanyol switch as Chelsea cut their losses on flop striker

18 June 2009 10:52
Chelsea flop Ben Sahar is expected to undergo a medical tomorrow ahead of his switch to Espanyol. The 19-year-old Israel striker has been offered a four-year contract with the Spanish side, who have offered almost £1million. Sahar, who was signed by Chelsea from Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2006, has struggled to establish himself at Stamford Bridge despite making his mark at international level. He has been loaned to Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth - where he did not make a single first-team appearance in six months - and Holland's De Graafschap. Sahar has played only three games for Chelsea in three years.
