19-year-old Chelsea star Faustino Anjorin will spend the season in Russia, with Lokomotiv having the option to make the deal permanent from January onwards for £17million.

If this happens, then Chelsea will have a buy-back clause in the player’s contract to allow them to re-sign him for a fee worth £34million in the future.
