Chelsea Loan Update
With numerous fringe squad players set to go out on season long loan deals, we have an update on who might be going where.
According to the tabloid press this morning, this is how the grass lies:-
Ryan Bertrand - Despite spending the majority of last season up at Villa Park last season, it seems that Aston Villa will not be taking up the opportunity to purchase one of our Allianz Arena heroes. Instead we believe that Ryan has gone to Southampton on a season long loan deal. We wish him well.
Josh McEachran - With several loan spells already under his belt, it looks as if 21 year-old Josh is no nearer making a first team impact at Stamford Bridge. It is now being suggested that Josh is to be sent off to a familiar destination for Chelsea youngsters, Vitesse Arnhem.
Patrick Bamford - Despite protestations that Chelsea would prefer 20 year-old Patrick to ply his trade in the Premier League, after scoring prolifically for the League One side MK Dons and the Championship side Derby County, we understand that Bamford will be off to Middlesbrough on a season long loan.
George Saville - The 21 year-old, who spent last season on loan at Bretford, as the League One side won promotion, was tipped to team up with his former boss, Uwe Rossler, at Wigan Athletic, however, the word is that Saville is also on the way to Middlesbrough.
We`ll provide details of any other loan moves we hear of when they become available.
