England international defender Gary Cahill will reportedly look for a move away from Chelsea in January unless he plays more matches, according to The Sun.
The Premier League side, who have won their opening four league games so far this campaign under new manager Maurizio Sarri, could lose the out of favour centre-back during the New Year transfer window, unless they give the player more first-team action.
The 32-year-old, who has 61 international caps for the Three Lions and was part of Gareth Southgate’s squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia earlier this summer, has failed to make a competitive appearance for The Blues this season, and has not even been included in Sarri’s matchday squad.
Cahill, who arrived at Stamford Bridge back in January 2012 following his reported £7m move from Bolton Wanderers, has scored 25 goals in 282 appearances in all competitions for The Blues overall.
Having failed to play a single minute of Chelsea’s 2018-19 campaign so far, the report suggests the defender will try to quit the club in January unless he becomes part of boss Sarri’s first-team plans.
Cahill is contracted at Stamford Bridge until June 2019, and is valued at £13.5m.
The centre-back stepped down from England duty last week before the current international break.
