Forgotten Chelsea Player Who Cost £21 Million To Be Loaned Out

Forgotten Chelsea Player Who Cost £21 Million To Be Loaned Out

Chelsea have loaned players to 87 clubs in the last five seasons, with destinations ranging from Club Universidad in Chile to the Metropolitan Police.

In this season alone, the club have a total of 38 players out on loan and some believe mistakes have been made in the process, including former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Speaking to BT Sport, Lampard said: "They need a bigger squad. You look at the good vibes that are coming out of Manchester City and Manchester United, even Arsenal and Tottenham but it's not working for anyone at Chelsea. You can see big frustration and the upset on Conte's face.

"People talk about the young players and the ones they've loaned out but they're not near the first team yet. I've seen them and they're developing but they're not going to come in and make a difference.

Now it looks like another player will be sent on loan in the coming days.
