Mikel John Obi will leave Chelsea in January- Siasia

Mikel heading for Blues exit - Siasia

Former Nigeria coach Samson Siasia believes Mikel John Obi will end his association with Chelsea in the January transfer window.



The Nigerian international has failed to make a competitive appearance this season with Antonio Conte not seeing him as a part of his plans.

Mikel, who is in his 11th season with the Premier League leaders, is said to have received multiple offers to leave Stamford Bridge, and Siasia feels the midfielder will move through exit door in the New Year,

"He is ready to quit Chelsea because he said this man (Antonio Conte) does not have anything for him and that was what he told me before he came down to the Olympics." he told AfricanFootball.com

The Super Eagles has just six months left on his present deal, and he would rather take the option of a winter exit rather than being released by the club at the end of the campaign.
