Reports in the Turkish media suggest that Premier League leaders, Chelsea are to sign a sponsorship deal with Turkish Airlines. It is understood the Blues are on the verge of agreeing A £25 million-a-year shirt sponsorship deal with Turkish Airlines.

As the Turkish Airlines are offering a £7m increase on Chelsea's current sponsors Samsung, the deal will become the fourth largest English Premier League shirt sponsorship ever, behind Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal who earn £45m, £40m and £30m respec­tively.

Europe's fourth biggest airliner, famous for its Lionel Messi, Kobe Bryant and Chelsea star Didier Drogba ads, have recently been sponsors of Barcelona, Manchester United and the Turkish national team.
