Michael Hector has left Premier League side Chelsea for a move to Fulham.
He has been with the Blues for the past four years without playing any match.
But the 27-year-old defender will only be available for Fulham in January 2020 Premier League giants Chelsea have announced that Jamaican football star Michael Hector will be joining Fulham on a permanent deal after spending four years at Stamford Bridge.
During his four-year stay at Chelsea, the 27-year-old defender failed to break into the Blues team as he played no single match for the London club.
Chelsea confirmed on their website that Hector will start training with Fulham immediately, but he will be available to play for his new club in January 2020. He spent last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and made 39 appearances as the Owls finished 12th in the second tier of English football.
It was in September 2015 that Michael Hector joined Chelsea from Reading after starting his youth career at Millwall.
“It was an easy decision to make. My Mum’s from Fulham, so it’s nice to join a club that some of my family support. “It’s good to now be a part of the setup here. Hopefully, things can work out well and we can get promoted,” Hector explained.
