Chelsea defender available for £12m

Zhirkov could be sold this summer to make room for fresh faces at ChelseaChelsea FC defender Yuri Zhirkov could be available to clubs for £12m should teams show any interest.

The 27 year old has already been the subject of enquiries from CSKA Moscow but a bid has not been forthcoming, Villas-Boas is trying to sell off some players he feels are not needed for the new campaign and would like to sell at least three or four this summer so he can bring fresh faces in.

Chelsea have been very slow in this summers transfer market, having already lost on Falcao after the striker signed an extension at Porto. It is believed that the club will unveil their first signing next week but in the meantime will listen to offers for the Russian defender if they meet the West London clubs valuation.
