Chelsea is in good position to sign Derby County midfielder, Max Bird, this summer, this is as reported by a British newspaper, Daily Mail on Saturday.

Chelsea are free to do business in the transfer market again, after successfully appealing against a FIFA-imposed transfer ban earlier this year.

The Blues manager, Frank Lampard, worked with Bird when he was the coach of Derby County last season.
