Michy Batshuayi completes Crystal Palace loan after Chelsea snub Tottenham

But the Belgium worldwide has often been used as a substitute in that time, playing second fiddle to Diego Costa for most of his time at Stamford Bridge.

A number of clubs had surfaced as potential suitors over the last few days with Valencia having made clear they did not want to retain Batshuayi, but were keen not to incur a penalty due for the premature curtailment of his original year-long deal at the Mestalla.

Michy Batshuayi faces a choice between joining West Ham or Real Betis on loan, with Everton unlikely to match Chelsea's £35 million asking price, sources have told ESPN FC.

Mauricio Pochettino desperately needs some back-up for Harry Kane after he was ruled out until March with an ankle injury and Tottenham are looking to offload Vincent Janssen to Schalke.

Batshuayi has spent the first half of this season on loan at La Liga side Valencia.

Following this Everton have lost interest in the forward and the Blues do not have any other option but to send him out on loan. Everton did sanction a series of loans for academy players such as Beni Baningime and Callum Connolly and also cancelled Cuco Martina's loan deal with Stoke City before loaning the defender out again to Feyenoord.

The report claims that Batshuayi is seen as a decent addition to the Toffees but they can not sign him on loan. The Dutch club can make the deal permanent this summer. He's turned us down at least twice before this window & insulted our fans on Twitter who critisized him going to Chelsea for money.

As things stand, it looks like Batshuayi will have to decide between Real Betis and West Ham.

Solhekol also confirmed Chelsea are not willing to sell Willian before Thursday's 11pm deadline.
