Melbourne Victory in talks with former Chelsea player?

Melbourne Victory are reportedly holding discussions with former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien.

Former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has reportedly held talks with Melbourne Victory.

The Ghanaian is currently without a club after leaving Panathinaikos during the summer but he has kept up his fitness levels by training with the Blues.

However, according to Fox Sports Australia, the 33-year-old is currently considering the opportunity to play in Australia for the next 12 months after being offered a contract by Victory.

If a deal is completed, it will come under the "guest marquee" status, which would mean that Football Federation Australia would subsidise any transfer.
