Reading defender Michael Hector heading to Chelsea?

Chelsea are close to signing Reading defender Michael Hector, according to reports.

Chelsea are on the verge of signing Reading defender Michael Hector, according to reports.

The 23-year-old is a regular for the Championship side and according to Sky Sports News, Chelsea are closing in on a £4m move for the Jamaican international.

Jose Mourinho has been looking for defensive reinforcements all summer and, after missing out on top target John Stones, has turned attention to other options.

The Royals man might not be the only defender reportedly joining the Blues on deadline day, with a deal for Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji believed to have been agreed.

Hector made 41 appearances in the Championship last season and was a part of the Jamaica squad that reached the CONCAF Gold Cup final in July.
