Chelsea players to be loaned out.

We are on a verge of loaning players out before the season starts. Kevin DeBruyne already made a deal with Bremen that keeps him at Germany for 1 year.

I'd like to discuss who you think should go out on loan and where. If any news pop out on these it'd nice to if people posted them here.

KDB - 1 year Werder Bremen.DONE. I think this is a great deal for the boy and for Chelsea. There was no chance he'd feature in our midfield-heavy squad this season.

Gael Kakuta - Hes' been linked to Marseille for a loan deal. If that Azpilicueta deal is done nice and clean I think OM would be a very good place for him to grow. He came out and stated he wants first team football, wheter it is for Chelsea or some other club. http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11668/7952263/Kakuta-s-first-team-target

Lukaku - Fulham is the only place I've seen him being linked to. If Fulham is short on strikers it would be great destination for the big boy. He needs to play and I think he can score 10-15 next season in the prem if a right team comes along. In a Championship-side he'd score more.

Piazon - No news on his dealings?

Who else?

As I posted on one of the other threads, I don't like the idea of us loaning out any players until we have seen how the team start the season. We've agreed to loan KDB already for the season so what happens if Marin and Hazard pick up injuries or just don't find form? It could well be we are struggling to open teams up and we could do with a Josh or a Piazon - no good if they are out on loan.

I hate the whole concept of loans and it really should only be for youth players who have little chance of playing for the first team and I would like to think KDB, Josh, Lukaku and Piazon all have a chance, especially if some of the new signings take time to settle.

Kakuta I would give until Christmas and hope he gets a bit of game time. If he doesn't impress by then we may as well sell in the January window as yet another loan move would be a waste of time and not do the lad any favours.

I think loaning out in most cases is very smart. Regular playing time is what these lads need and loaning out is how they get it. Reserves games are sh*t compared to tough bundesliga games as KDB will find out.

Sturridge did pretty well after his great loan spell at Bolton and now he is a regular at Chelsea.

I forgot Josh. Now that Oscar is in he is very far from first team action. 1 year loan in Championship level team is what he needs.

It can be smart and it can work but then again it doesn't always. Some of our loan moves in the past have failed miserably. As I say, let's see how we start the season and the new players gell. Why shoot ourselves in the foot by agreeing to season long loans and then find we're struggling with what we're left with. I think people are too quick to think *great we've got Oscar, Hazard, Marin....whoever, we don't need Piazon / McEachran, send them out on loan". That could backfire big-time IMO.

If we pick a loan for Josh it needs to be more thought out than the last...simply packing off to the championship is ridculous, the guy thrives on a short based, attractive style whereas the championship is direct and physical. You get the odd team playing good football but somewhere like holland would be a much better start, personally I would not bother to loan him out as he is much better than meireles and has the legs and creativity we are missing in midfield

I reckon and reckoning is pretty much all I do these days that KDB, Josh and Lukaku are the right choices to send out on loan. I also think Essien should be on his way out, Malouda should be gone and Meireles have a season left. So on to why I reckon this...

Now, I'm going to assume Oscar will be playing in the centre and you can argue this, but if he doesn't, it's likely Ramires will play in the centre instead thus making up the numbers anyway, so if you disagree with me on Oscar playing in the centre, substitute his name with Ramires. So we have two central positions, where we'd expect either KDB (based on his last few months) and Josh to be aiming for. Mikel or Romeu will be fighting for the more defensive of the positions and Oscar and Lampard for the playmaker position, with Meireles as the utility player who can come in and 'do a job' at either. That gives us plenty of cover there and a number of options to change it up (4-3-3s and whatnot). With Essien there as well, we look a bit overstocked in numbers but based on last year, Essien and Meireles don't add quality.

Then we have the attacking midfield three, where we have options with Mata, Hazard, Ramires (or Oscar if you disagree with me), Marin, Piazon and I'm going to assume Moses as well. That's two players for each position and with the added bonus of Sturridge being able to offer an option there as well as Oscar and Moses and Mata being able to cover the strikers as well if there are injury problems. Lots of versatility and options to change things around. The main worry of course being Piazon and you're no doubt wondering why I'd have him stay here instead of Josh, well it's because I think Piazon has enough left to learn that simply being involved in the squad and some reserve team games are enough for him at the moment. Josh simply wouldn't learn from them, he just needs game time and he won't get enough here. Piazon of course needs game time, but not to the same extent and he's still good enough to offer an option if required.

Lukaku needs games and fine tuning of his touch, things that require mistakes we can't afford for him to make at the moment. A loan is again the right opportunity for him to make a couple of mistakes at a slightly lower level with slightly less pressure before coming back slightly older and wiser and able to fight for his place.

So yeah, the point with all of this is that, Meireles who I think should be given this season thanked for his services and have his role taken by KDB and Josh with Lampard's role reduced. He's getting older so he'll naturally start less games, giving more chances for our returning youngsters and when he eventually calls it a day, we'll have two players who have had a chance to grow into more and more appearances.

Lukaku has a tougher job on his hands, in that he's going for a position where there's only one spot in the side and 2 players undoubtedly ahead of him right now and I think he needs the loan to improve so he's ready to take on that monumental challenge. It weakens us up front this season, but I'm confident that we have enough cover with Mata and the likelihood of Moses.

So yeah, that's what my reckoning powers came up with. They are quite literally powers to be reckoned with... or at least to use for the purpose of reckoning.

From SkySports:

Romelu Lukaku's agent says the Chelsea striker will not be joining Fulham on loan, but is close to finalising a season-long switch to a rival Premier League club.

The teenage striker was unable to make an impact at Stamford Bridge last season following his arrival from Anderlecht and he failed to score in 12 appearances.

The Belgium international started only once in the Premier League and he has admitted he is keen to be playing regular first-team football this season.

He has already ruled out a move to Werder Bremenspacer.gif on loan as the 19-year-old wants to gain experience of English football and he had been strongly linked with Fulham.spacer.gif

However, Lukaku's representative Christophe Henrotay says the powerful forward is likely to join another top-flight club rather than make the short move to Craven Cottage.

"I can assure you that Romelu is not going to Fulham," Henrotay told Sport/Foot. "I am currently finalising the details with another Premier League club.

"Romelu will go on loan. I cannot say which team he will join, or when it will happen, but things are progressing."

Stoke Cityspacer.gif were rumoured to be interested in Lukaku last season, while the likes of Sunderlandspacer.gif have been reported to be keen this summer.

The other club is West Brom, I believe.

Okay. Cool. What makes you believe that?

I strongly believe the boy can score 10-15 goals this coming season in the EPL. He is very gifted. He just needs to be in a team he can fail to score on an occasion or two.

A West Brom fan I know seemed adamant and now the Daily Mail are going with that line as well, seeing as no one else is saying much, it seems the most likely.

I'd like to think McEachran is ready for PL-level football and that he can do well at a team like WBA/Wigan. The problem last season was not that he wasn't good enough for the PL, but that he wasn't good enough for Swansea's midfield which was certainly among the top 5-6 midfields in the league. Ironically, I think he'd do ok at Swansea this season, what with no Siggurdson or Allen to block his path into the first team.
