Chelsea chasing Hearts winger

chelsea fanaticContributor IJune 8, 2010
Chelsea have emerged as surprise candidates to sign Hearts winger Andrew Driver and could be ready to offer £5million for him.

Recently-relegated Burnley were thought to be leading the way to sign the England Under-21 international, who was said to be keen to return south of the border.

However, news of champions Chelsea's interest, while coming as a shock, could mean a £5million switch to Stamford Bridge is on the cards for the 22-year-old.

Driver has a contract with the Jambos until 2013 but a £5million offer would surely tempt them to sell up and be a move the highly-rated ace would struggle to turn down.

Reports in Scotland suggest Blues owner Roman Abramovich has already discussed the offer with his Hearts counterparts in a bid to beat the likes of Burnley, Wigan Athletic, Middlesbrough and Holland's FC Twente to his signature.
