Chelsea goalkeeper Matej Delac is spending this week training with Danish side AC Horsens with a view to joining them on a permanent deal in the summer, as per Horsens official website.

The 25-year-old signed for Chelsea in 2010 from Croatian side Inter Zapresic and is currently the club’s longest serving player, even though he’s never actually played a competitive game for them.

The former Croatian U21 international has been loaned out a staggering nine times in eight years, to clubs like Vitesse, Vitoria de Guimaraes, Vojvodina, Sarajevo and Mouscron, but he’s never been able to make the break through into Chelsea’s first team.

With Thibaut Courtois clearly the club’s number one goalkeeper, and with Willy Caballero firmly established as the reserve option, Delac couldn’t see any way of making an impact at Stamford Bridge and as such, he’s decided to make the move to Denmark.
