Chelsea youngster Ruben Loftus-Cheek could look to make a loan move away from the club in the new year should he fail to hold down a regular first team place in the side, the Daily Mail reports.
The 19-year-old has only started three games so far this season, chalking up a total of 211 minutes on the pitch after Jose Mourinho reportedly promised him more game time this season (via Mail).
Chelsea famously have a high volume of youngsters out on loan at the moment, with the likes of Fiorentina, Monaco and Vitesse Arnhem loaning fellow youngsters Lewis Baker, Danilo Pantic, Isaiah Brown, Dominic Solanke and Nathan (via Mail), while there will also undoubtedly be a number of Championship sides keen on taking him on board, too.
The Mail state that Loftus-Cheek feels he would be better suited getting regular game time under his belt rather than sit doing nothing on Chelsea’s bench all season.
