Alexandre Pato scored on his debut at Villa Park but made only one start for Chelsea

Alexandre Pato has joined fellow striker Radamel Falcao and goalkeeper Marco Amelia in leaving Chelsea.

Brazilian Pato, 26, moved to the club on loan from Corinthians in January, scoring a penalty on his debut in a 4-0 victory at Aston Villa in April.

He made his only start for the Blues in a 1-0 defeat at Swansea a week later.

Falcao returns to Monaco at the end of his loan while Amelia, who signed as cover for Thibaut Courtois but did not feature, becomes a free agent.
