Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos was signed in the January window but has yet been able to play for the club due to not having a work permit.

There is some confidence though that he will be granted a permit very soon and be able to play for Chelsea for the rest of the season.

This will be great news for Chelsea because Santos is a player rated very highly at the club, and in world football.

With Chelsea signing Andrey Santos and Nottingham Forest buying Danilo, the Premier League sides landed two of the most talented young midfielders in Brazil last month.

Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola was speaking about both players, as cited by Sport Witness“Andrey is a very, very, very good player. He puts Danilo in his pocket. He is much more of a player than Danilo. He is only 18 years old and has a bright future.”
