    It's been a quiet transfer deadline day in terms of signings at Stamford Bridge, but it hasn't stopped plenty of players departing.

    Marco van Ginkel has now joined AC Milan on a season long loan, confirmed on ChelseaFC.com.

    Nathaniel Chalobah has also joined Burnley until January.

    Those two were the most high-profile moves, with other academy products alongside Chalobah moving on loan.

    Striker Islam Feruz has joined Greek side OFI Crete until the end of 2014/15, while Matej Delac has joined Ligue 2 outfit Arles-Avignon.

    Mexican Ulises Davila has also joined Club Deportivo Tenerife, who compete in Spain's second division.

    Delac and Davila's loans are for the season, also.

    The total number of Chelsea players currently on loan now stands at 25.

    It seems Marco van Ginkel is close to his season-long loan move from Chelsea to AC Milan.

    The Dutch midfielder is set to join Fernando Torres at the Italian giants (see Slide 5) and ahead of the move, the Rossoneri tweeted an image of van Ginkel under going his medical (below).

    Chelsea haven't officially confirmed the move yet, but with van Ginkel's medical set to be complete, it shouldn't be much longer before an official announcement is made.

Petr Cech Attracts Paris Saint-Germain Interest

    Could Petr Cech be ready to follow David Luiz out of Chelsea by joining Paris Saint-Germain?

    The Daily Mail reports the Chelsea stopper is a target for the Ligue 1 champions, who are looking to take advantage of the 32-year-old losing his place to Thibaut Courtois.

    A loan move seems the best option for PSG at the moment as they look to stay within UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.

Chelsea Still Interested in Mattia Destro

    Chelsea have already signed Loic Remy ahead of the transfer deadline (see Slide 4), but according to Daily Star, they remain interested in Roma's Mattia Destro.

    They will have to act quick if they want to sign the Italian, though, as it seems Arsene Wenger is eager to beat the Blues to the punch.

    As is tradition on any transfer deadline day, reports of Wenger's—and other players and managers' whereabouts—were posted on Twitter, with the Arsenal boss seen catching a flight to Italy.

    The Daily Star article explains he is due in Rome for a charity match, but could well be in the Italian capital to seal the transfer of Destro, also.

Loic Remy Signs from QPR

    Chelsea have wasted little time in replacing Fernando Torres, signing QPR's Loic Remy on Sunday.

    The club confirmed the news via the official website, with Remy stating:

    I feel very happy and very proud to have signed for Chelsea. They are one of the best clubs in the world and I can’t wait to get started, training and playing with my new team-mates, when I get back from international duty with France.

    To be honest I wanted to play in the Champions League this season so yes, that was another of my motivations for coming here. I know that Chelsea can win the Champions League this season because there is so much quality in the squad. The first thing to aim for is winning titles.

    Remy will wear the No. 18 shirt at Chelsea.

    We're delighted to announce the signing of Loic Remy... http://t.co/ciHKhwmvXn #CFC pic.twitter.com/zUucjG7r3z

Marco Van Ginkel Expected to Follow Fernando Torres to AC Milan in Loan Deal

    It seems AC Milan are benefiting considerably from Chelsea's fringe players in this transfer window.

    Not content with snapping up Fernando Torres on a two-year loan deal, the Rossoneri appear all set to announce the arrival of Marco van Ginkel before the window closes.

    The Dutch midfielder arrived in Italy over the weekend ahead of agreeing a one-year loan deal, according to Goal.com.

    Milan also tweeted an image of his arrival (below).

    The move will mean Van Ginkel is given valuable playing time after missing much of last season with a serious knee injury.

    With Chelsea's midfield already looking competitive, his opportunities would have been few this term.
