HAKIM ZIYECH has seen his loan move to PSG officially collapse following a shambolic paperwork gaffe.
The two clubs agreed a deal but Chelsea sent over the wrong documentation for Ziyech’s move, infuriating PSG.

In a desperate attempt to revive the transfer, the French champions submitted an appeal in order to get the move completed.
But it has now been confirmed that the French FA decided the deal cannot go through, one day after the winter window shut.
It was always going to be difficult for France’s governing body to grant PSG’s request.
Although the LFP also had an issue on deadline day with some of their computer systems experiencing a breakdown.
It gave PSG some hope but the deal has since fallen through.
Ziyech, 29, joined Chelsea in 2020 from Ajax and lifted the Champions League a year later.
But under all three of his managers, Frank Lampard, Thomas Tuchel and now Graham Potter, he has struggled to hold down a regular place.
And his future in West London faced further doubt as billionaire Blues owner Todd Boehly splashed the cash in his first two transfer windows.

Just this month, he welcomed the attacking arrivals of Joao Felix, Mykhailo Mudryk, Noni Madueke, and David Datro Fofana.
It leaves the likes of Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling sweating over their game time.
And Chelsea also agreed a Premier League record signing of 2022 World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez for £107m from Benfica.
