Bremen - Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji has joined Werder Bremen on loan until the end of the season.

The Bundesliga club announced the deal on Thursday without giving financial details.

Werder Bremen is 16th in the Bundesliga and faces a struggle against relegation when the campaign resumes this weekend after the winter break. The club needed a defender after the departure of Assani Lukimya for China.

Djilobodji could make his debut on Sunday at Schalke. He arrived in Chelsea last summer from the French club Nantes and made only one brief League Cup appearance in September.
