Deadline Day is slowly but surely approaching from the distance from Chelsea as they aim to seal their January business.

As of the time of writing, the Blues are yet to welcome any new faces to Stamford Bridge, with Thomas Tuchel aiming to keep his side challenging on multiple fronts.

That does not mean that the reigning European champions have not been linked to a number of names throughout the window thus far – quite the opposite.

Rumours have been circling consistently as the Blues aim to add defensive recruits, with the likes of Theo Hernandez, Sergino Dest and many more thought to be on Chelsea’s shortlist.

With that being said, Chelseafutbal takes a look at the latest deals that have been signed-off at Stamford Bridge.

Jamie Cumming to MK Dons (January 13)

The Blues’ January business started in a somewhat conservative manner as young goalkeeper Jamie Cumming joined League One outfit MK Dons.

He had previously spent the first-half of the season with Gillingham and will now spend the remainder of the campaign at Stadium:MK.

Kenedy recalled from Flamengo (January 13)

Amid Chelsea’s search for a full-back in the January market, they decided to recall Brazilian utility man Kenedy from a season-long loan deal with Flamengo.

The 25-year-old had made 17 appearances for the Serie A club during the first-half of the season and is now available to play for the Blues.

Lewis Baker to Stoke City (January 15)

The first permanent deal of the window saw long-serving midfielder Lewis Baker wave goodbye to Stamford Bridge after a 16-year-spell in west London.

With his contract expiring at the end of the campaign, he joined Championship outfit Stoke City on a two-and-a-half year deal.

In all of his time with Chelsea, the 26-year-old made just two appearances, being sent out on eight separate loan deals.

Juan Castillo from Birmingham City to Charlton Athletic (January 21)

Another full-back to have seen a temporary stint away from Stamford Bridge cut short, the Dutch international only made five appearances for Birmingham City.

He was barely back in west London though as he dropped a division to join Charlton Athletic on another loan deal, an agreement that is set to run until the end of the campaign.
