DONE DEAL – Chelsea Completes Transfer Of 6ft 1″ Tall Powerful Defender – Not Baba

More than thirty Chelsea players were sent on loan to several European sides last summer, and this transfer window, over twenty players signed by the Blues have also been farmed out on loan spells. However, joining the loan army is young English midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.

ESPN understands the Chalobah is on the verge of sealing a loan move to Championship outfit Reading as he seeks to continue his progress as a player.

Chalobah was widely tipped to make it into the Chelsea first team, following his impressive performance for the Blues’ academy and also on loan. But as we speak, he is yet to feature for the Blues in a competitive match.

The England Under-21 midfielder has had loan spells at Watford, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough and Burnley. Chalobah also spent the second half of last season on loan at Reading, and he is set to return there on a season-long loan deal.

The Sierra Leone-born player joined newly-promoted Burnley on loan at the beginning of last season and had the chance to showcase his potentials in the English Premier League. However at the Turf Moor, things did not go as the Englishman would have wanted as he made four appearances for Sean Dyche’s side and the loan had to be cut short for the all-action midfielder to move to Reading. It was at the Championship side he enjoyed enough game time as he featured 20 times for the club.

Chalobah scored one goal and created 17 chances, as he formed a formidable partnership with Danny Williams and he is now set to make a return to the Madejski stadium in a bid to finally get himself settled at a club.

Sources at Reading claimed there is still work to do concerning the transfer, but they are really confident the player will soon be back wearing the blue and white shirt.

It is believed the Royals manager Steve Clarke is utilising his relationship well with Jose Mourinho and Chelsea, and that is why he did not face much hassles regarding the transfer – which is now imminent.
