The Senegal centre-back moved to the reigning Premier League champions in the summer after leaving FC Nantes, but largely failed to make an impact in west London.
Despite the side’s struggles, and the indifferent performances of the likes of John Terry and Gary Cahill, Djilobodji was hardly given the opportunity to impress, either under Jose Mourinho or his successor Guus Hiddink.
Indeed, the international only managed one appearance for the Blues—a brief cameo in the League Cup—before being sent on loan to Werder Bremen in the January transfer window.
The 27-year-old has impressed so far in the Bundesliga and, speaking to German newspaper Bild, has admitted that he doesn’t know whether he will return to Stamford Bridge at the end of his temporary stay.
“I don’t know what will happen in the summer,” Djilobodji admitted, although with Terry coming to the end of his contract in west London, and with Kurt Zouma sidelined with a long-term injury, could the West African be set for an unlikely reprieve with the Pensioners?
