The Loan Army returned to some semblance of normalcy this week, with plenty of players continuing to tick over nicely, a handful missing for various reasons, and Tammy Abraham scoring another goal. Headliners Abraham scored his fifth goal of the season for Aston Villa and did so against Fikayo Tomori, Frank Lampard, Jody Morris and Derby County. He and Assistant Manager John Terry claimed the bragging rights in a Chelsea-infused…

After a steady if unspectacular few weeks on the loan front, things exploded back into life over the past seven days, with a bunch of goals and noteworthy talking points. Let’s get stuck in. Headliners It’s a good time to be Jacob Maddox. Turning 20 on Saturday, he scored his first professional goals in midweek by notching a brace in Cheltenham’s Checkatrade Trophy win against Arsenal’s Under-21s, and followed that…

Another week, another goal for the Loan Army. It wasn’t the most spectacular seven days, but the 40-strong group continues to churn along rather nicely overall. Headliners Michy Batshuayi provided the goal as Valencia drew 1-1 at Young Boys in the Champions League; his smart touch to create the chance was followed by the composure to round the goalkeeper and tuck away his second goal of the season. It hasn’t…

We’re back with a full Loan Report after the international break, and we’ve got another Tammy Abraham goal, as he begins life under a new manager in positive fashion. Headliners Abraham’s form has been pretty good so far at Aston Villa, registering three goals in six games heading into the weekend, but the club’s overall record under Steve Bruce was woeful and led to a change of manager. Dean Smith…

The Loan Army is an imperfect venture but, when it works, it works well. Mason Mount’s England call-up this week encapsulated that and headlines this week’s Loan Report. Headliners Mount has been genuinely outstanding for Derby County this season, not just in scoring and creating goals, but in his all-round impact on a much-changed, generally younger Rams team seeking to build a promotion-winning campaign. His performance in last week’s League…

It was a fairly quiet week overall on the loan front for Chelsea but, when headlines were made, they were made in sensational fashion. There were none bigger than those achieved by Frank Lampard and Jody Morris at Derby County in midweek, so let’s start there. Headliners The Rams, of course, have Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori amongst their squad for the campaign, and both were in sterling form on…

Another productive week for the Loan Army was headlined by goals from two England Under-21 internationals who are anything but strangers to stealing the show. Headliners Tammy Abraham scores goals in the Championship. He proved as much during the 2016-17 season at Bristol City, and grabbed his first in Aston Villa colours in midweek, opening his account in a 2-0 win against Rotherham. It was a very typical Tammy Abraham…

We’re back from the international break with a full complement of loanees to catch up on, with the headlines this week belonging to Iké Ugbo. Headliners Ugbo will have found out a lot about himself over the past twelve months; his first loan in professional football was at Championship club Barnsley, where a promising start grew into winter frustration. He swapped the Tykes’ red for the white of Milton Keynes…

The international break usually means a break from the Loan Report but, with more a dozen young Blues still around and not getting any time off, we’re still going to check in on the latest news and views. Headliners The best performer over the past seven days has to be Yeovil’s Nathan Baxter, who recorded a fifth straight clean sheet in the Glovers’ midweek Checkatrade Trophy clash with Exeter City….

With the transfer window also closing in most countries on Friday, we’ll also cover the last-minute deals that took the Loan Army up to a record-breaking 40.
