Unwanted and unused Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta has reportedly agreed to leave the club this summer and has already agreed a four-year deal to join Spanish giants Sevilla, according to the Daily Star.

The former starlet is available on a free transfer this summer and will now move on after failing to establish himself in the Blues first team.
And according to reports in his native France, the Spanish club will meet with Chelsea representatives later this week to discuss a compensation deal for the winger.
The 23-year-old has impressed at fellow La Liga side Rayo Vallecano this season, bagging five goals in 34 appearances this season.
Kakuta himself has known that the writing has been on the wall for some time, suggesting back in December that he knew his long term future lay away from Stamford Bridge.
“My goal at the moment is to continue growing as a player here [at Rayo],” Kakuta said.
“Time will decide what will happen. I do not look beyond the day-to-day.
“It is best to keep focused on what I do, which is nothing else but helping Rayo get good results.”
Kakuta linked up with Chelsea back in 2007, and his arrival caused the Blues to be hit by a transfer embargo, which was quickly lifted after an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport following an appeal.
