Transfer: Former Barcelona forward leaves Chelsea on loan

Chelsea midfielder, Josimar Quintero has left the club on loan to Lleida Esportiu.

The Spanish Segunda División B side confirmed this on their official website.

Ouintero, 21, was sent out on loan to Rostov last summer but was recalled due to his lack of first-team opportunities at the Russian club.

He was farmed out again on loan to Betis Deportivo Balompié in January 2018.

Quintero, who joined the Blues in the 2013-2014 season, is yet to make a competitive appearance for the London club.

He was a member of Chelsea squad for their campaign in the 2015-2016 UEFA Youth League and was on target against Porto in a Group G fixture.

Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, he was on the books of the youth team of Barcelona for eight years, having moved to Spain at the age of five.

The player has one cap for Ecuador’s U20 team and is eligible to represent Spain.
