According to Portuguese news outlet Record, the centre-back lost control of his vehicle just 100 metres after departing Porto's training ground.

They state that the accident involving the France youth international occurred on Wednesday in the early afternoon.

Initial reports stated that Sarr's team-mate Moussa Marega was also in the car, however those claims have been shut down by Record.

Sarr is said to have walked away from the accident unscathed after the airbags deployed, however his Mercedes was bashed up.

The former Nice star has impressed during his loan at Porto, where he has featured in 19 games in all competitions.

And he could face Chelsea next month after Porto were drawn against the West London outfit in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Under Uefa rules, players out on loan are able to face their parent club in European competitions.

Sarr revealed last week that he is looking to break into the Chelsea team once he returns from Portugal.

Speaking to L'Equipe via Sport Witness, he said: "I was training with Chelsea before I got loaned. The loan was part of the plan.

"I had to be honest with myself, my season ended in March and I wasn’t going to be successful right away with Chelsea.

“It was the perfect solution because I wanted to do a season at a top club like Porto, to be good and then later take a place at Chelsea."
