It has been confirmed that Christopher Vivell will join Chelsea as their new technical director, just hours after it announced that he had dismissed from the same role with RB Leipzig.

Leipzig took to Twitter on Frjday morning to confirm that Vivell 'was dismissed from his role as technical director on Thursday due to a difference in contrasting views'.

And The Telegraph's Matt Law has now revealed that he will take up the same role at Stamford Bridge after he met with the club again during the week.

The Todd Boehly-Clearlake Capital ownership will be pleased to finally find the right man, having already seen moves for Michael Edwards and Christoph Freund fail.
