Gael Kakuta has today (Friday) completed a loan move to Lazio until the end of the season.
The French winger or attacking midfielder, who spent the past season and a half on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, moved to Chelsea from Lens in 2007 and has made 16 appearances for our first team. He made his debut as a substitute against Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2009 and has also represented the Blues in the Champions League.
Kakuta was part of the France Under-19 side that won the 2010 European Championships and has gone on to represent his national side at both Under-20 and Under-21 level.
He embarks on a fifth loan spell away from Stamford Bridge having previously spent time at Fulham and Bolton Wanderers in the Barclays Premier League, and with Dijon in France, before his time with Vitesse.
