Baba goes to Greece

Baba Rahman has today moved on loan to Greek side PAOK for the remainder of the campaign.

Having recovered from injury, the 26-year-old left-back has appeared on occasions for Chelsea’s development squad this season but now moves overseas for first team football.

Baba joined Chelsea from German side Augsburg in the summer of 2015 and made 23 appearances in his debut season at Stamford Bridge.

The following campaign was spent on loan at Schalke and the Ghanaian international featured prominently before a cruciate ligament injury in his knee at the Africa Cup of Nations kept him on the sidelines for a year. His return came with Schalke in January 2018 and he made five appearances before a switch to Reims in France 12 months later, where he played 11 games.

In September 2019, the defender completed a season-long loan move to newly promoted La Liga side Real Mallorca, where injuries once again restricted him to a handful of appearances.

His new loan club PAOK are known to Chelsea supporters for our games against them in the Europa League in 2018. They are currently fourth in the Greek Super League table.
