Todd Boehly left his role as interim sporting director at Chelsea with a more structured recruiting team coming together.

In recent months, Chelsea have focused on building a new team made up of players from various parts of the world. Alongside Paul Winstanley, the team’s global talent and transfer director, Christopher Vivell will now lead the transfer business as technical director.

Chelsea had always planned for Boehly to walk away from the club’s transfer dealings after a new boardroom was formed, and the co-owner is now confident the new group can run the club going forward.

Benoit Badiashile was pictured alongside Vivell and Winstanley when they joined from Monaco earlier this month, and the pair will continue to look for reinforcements for the rest of January.

Chelsea completed the signings of David Fofana and Benoit Badiashile last week and have reached an agreement to sign Joao Félix on loan from Atlético de Madrid, without a purchase option.

The Blues are expected to be active in the window over the next few weeks as they look to back Graham Potter with the necessary talent to salvage something from Boehly’s debut season.
