Piazon heads to Malaga on loan

Malaga have confirmed the signing of Chelsea youngster Lucas Piazon on loan until the end of the season.

The striker underwent a medical with the Spanish side on Tuesday, and trained with the members of the squad who have not travelled for the Copa del Rey quarter-final clash with Barcelona on Wednesday.

Piazon has made two starts for Chelsea this season, both in the League Cup victories over Wolves and Manchester United.

The Brazilian also came on as a substitute in the 8-0 Premier League thrashing of Aston Villa, but missed a penalty late on.

The 18-year-old will wear the number 12 shirt at Malaga, formerly worn by Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla.

The Spanish side do not have the option to buy at the end of the loan.

Despite the temporary departure of Piazon, Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez said on Tuesday there were no plans to recall Romelu Lukaku from his loan spell at West Brom.
