Kakuta keen on move
Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta says he will leave Chelsea in order to get first-team football, amid speculation linking him with Marseille.
Marseille are believed to be keen on the 21-year-old and want to take him on a season-long loan but Kakuta insists he has not had any contact with the Ligue 1 club, but admits he is pleased to be linked with them and might consider a move in order to receive more playing time.
"I am flattered by Marseille's interest, but there has been nothing official, so maybe it is just paper talk," he said.
"I want to play first-team football week in, week out, either at Chelsea or anywhere else."
Chelsea strengthened their wide areas with the arrival of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin this summer, moving Kakuta further down the pecking order in Roberto Di Matteo's first-team squad.
Kakuta, a France Under-21 international, moved to Stamford Bridge from Lens in 2009 but has made just 17 first-team appearances for Chelsea since then, spending last season on loan at Bolton Wanderers and Dijon, scoring four goals in 12 matches in the French top flight.
