NEC Nijmegen have agreed a deal to sign Ben Sahar from Chelsea.

The 18-year-old striker is currently in Holland speaking with NEC officials and holding further talks with coach Mario Been.

The Israeli international finished last season on loan at Sheffield Wednesday have previously spent most of the campaign with Queens Park Rangers.

Chelsea are now ready to let him join NEC on a season-long loan.

"The contacts have come through a well-known network, Frank Arnesen is technical director at Chelsea and the talks have been natural," technical director Carlos Aalbers told De Gelderlander.

Hope

Aalbers is now hopeful a deal can be concluded.

"We will examine the financial deal with Chelsea in the coming days," he continued.

"How large is our chance [of signing him], I dare not say at this moment."
