EPL: Chelsea receive double boost ahead of match against Newcastle

EPL: Chelsea star will leave Pochettino's team in January transfer

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino could drop Ian Maassen from his squad in the January transfer window.

According to the Telegraph, Borussia Dortmund are “confident” of signing Maassen on a permanent transfer or on loan this month.

The Dutch defender came close to leaving Chelsea last summer, but rejected a £31.5m move to Premier League rivals Burnley on transfer deadline day.

The 21-year-old has since struggled to secure a regular place in Pochettino's XI and has often come off the bench in the Premier League so far this season.

Dortmund already expressed interest in signing Maassen in January and are in talks with Chelsea over the possibility of signing the player.

The German Bundesliga side has not yet decided whether Maassen will head to Dortmund on a loan deal or as a permanent transfer, but they are optimistic that a deal will be finalized.
