RUMOURS: Chelsea ready to send Loftus-Cheek on loan

1

The 20-year-old made 17 appearances for the Blues last season but is now on the outskirts of the squad, and will look at a loan move for regular playing time

 Chelsea are willing to send midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan for the rest of the season, with West Ham and Championship leaders Brighton both interested, according to the Evening Standard.

The 20-year-old is on the fringe of Antonio Conte’s squad having emerged as one of the most promising products of the Blues’ academy, but has started just two games for the Stamford Bridge outfit this season, both of which cam in the League Cup.

Loftus-Cheek, who made 17 appearances for Chelsea last season, is wanted by the Hammers as Slaven Bilic looks to strengthen his midfield options, though the guarantee of regular first-team football may give Brighton the advantage.

Chris Hughton’s Seagulls currently hold a two-point gap over second-place Newcastle with a game to spare, having seen their home tie with Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City postponed at the end of December.
