Chelsea have agreed to allow Gustavo Poyet to leave the club after the midfielder handed in a written transfer request.

Poyet, 33, has been unhappy with his failure to secure a regular starting place over the past couple of months and has decided to seek a final new challenge in his career.

While Chelsea have not yet received any formal offers, it is thought the Uruguay international may be in favour of staying in London.

Fulham and Tottenham are among those clubs who could be interested although Chelsea would be looking for a transfer fee in the region of £2million.

Colin Hutchinson said "Gus has spoken to both myself and Claudio about this and we have both told him we want him to stay."

Poyet has been one of the stars of the Chelsea side over the last few years and one of the most prolific of attacking midfielders in the Premiership. Yet as Claduio Ranieri seeks to reduce the average age of the squad it inevitably means a few of the older players could have more competition for their places. Poyet has been a huge crowd favourite and will long be remembered for some spectacular and crucial goals in his time at Stamford Bridge.
