Fulham - Kakuta Deal Done
Our neighbours, from just down the Fulham Road, have consented to us loaning the French winger, Gael Kakuta.
The youngster passed at medical at Fulham yesterday and signed on the dotted line until the end of the season.
On releasing the winger those at Chelsea issued a statement that read,
"Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Gael Kakuta has today (Wednesday) signed on loan at Fulham until the end of the season. Kakuta, who recently signed a new four-and-a-half year deal with Chelsea, will be hoping to gain increased first-team opportunities to add to his total of 16 appearances in our colours. The French Under 20 international joined the club in July 2007 as a trainee, making his debut in November 2009 before helping his country to the Under 19 European Championship last summer."
Kakuta goes straight into the squad for the FA Cup clash with Spurs this weekend. We hope his time with us will be productive for all concerned.
