Andrey Santos has completed his loan move to Strasbourg.
Despite being on international duty with Brazil, the midfielder has seen a switch to Chelsea’s affiliate club go through. As we expected, loans between sister clubs are the easiest deals to get done, even remotely.
Santos was recalled from a disaster loan at Nottingham Forest at the start of the month, and is now able to go to Ligue 1 thanks to the recall of Diego Moreira from an equally terrible loan to Lyon freeing up a slot.
Strasbourg is a step down in quality for Andrey, but it’s still a top league and what matters is that he plays every week.
