Chelsea are on the lookout for a new sporting director and among the names suggested to be under consideration at Stamford Bridge is Orta.


Orta came to Leeds in the summer of 2017 and has overseen a much-desired promotion to the Premier League and the Whites are now in their third season in the top flight.



Marsch has revealed that he is not surprised to see the name of Orta being linked with Chelsea, but he hopes that the director continues at Leeds.


The Leeds boss believes Orta is pleased to be at Elland Road and insists that they have a great relationship.



“I’m not surprised that he’s being linked”, Marsch said in a press conference.


“I can unequivocally say that he’s very happy here and we have an incredible relationship.



“I hope he stays.”


Chelsea have already failed with one approach for their sporting director role, Christoph Freund from RB Salzburg, and Leeds fans will be hoping that they do not get Orta out of Elland Road either.
