Ben Sahar joins on loan
According to today's Guardian
we have signed young Israeli striker Ben Sahar on loan until January. Sahar is just 17 and was signed by Chelsea from Hapoel Tel Aviv when he was just 16. He played 3 times for the Blues last season.
Sahar is said to be one of Israel's brightest talents and was nabbed by Chelsea's famed spotter of young players Frank Arneson. This was the original Sky Sports article
when he signed for Chelsea in May 2006. It makes good reading and continues Pards move towards young players.
Sahar will compete with Chris Iwelumo, Luke Varney, Marcus Bent and Chris Dickson. Hopefully a midfielder will be next, and I expect Pards will bring other loan signings in and will not break into too much of the loot received from Spurs for Darren Bent.
