Headliners The 21 year-old opted to stay with Roda during the January transfer window, despite having plenty of options elsewhere, and scored his 12th goal of a largely positive stay in Kerkrade against Den Bosch on Friday night. The problem was, it…

Another transfer window has come and (thankfully) gone, and there was some loan business in the final week of trading that headlines our latest catch-up on everything concerning the Loan Army.

In a generally quiet week on the loan front, we’ll use this week’s Loan Report to catch up on a few changing situations and look forward to the final week of the transfer window.

Two members of the Loan Army who are unlikely to ever actually return to play for Chelsea scored this week but, nevertheless, they’re deserving of this week’s headlines. Headliners Lucas Piazon has had another frustrating in what, in all honesty, must be a fairly frustrating career so far. 2020 has been kinder though and, after scoring in the league for Rio Ave last weekend, he netted a free kick away…

After a quiet couple of weeks, the Loan Report brings you goals again, as a familiar face got back on the score sheet in his first match of 2020, and another member of the Loan Army netted to kick-start a disappointing season to date. Headliners Lucas Piazon hasn’t quite had things go his way since agreeing a two-year stay with Rio Ave in Portugal; despite scoring in the cup against…

The final Loan Report of 2019 is an abridged one, due to much of Europe still being on a winter hiatus, but there’s still stuff to check up on. England Premier League Danny Drinkwater’s time at Burnley likely came to an end with a pair of matches spent on the substitutes’ bench. His loan at Turf Moor is unlikely to be extended, so the hunt is on for a new…

You can’t keep Mario Pašalić down, as he ably demonstrated again this week, with a goal and an assist to take the Loan Army into Christmas. Headliners Pašalić has arguably been the player of the Loan Army season to date, considering his level of performance for a genuinely good Atalanta team. Having booked their place in the Champions League knockout rounds last week, they were back on top in Serie…

Chelsea returned to FA Youth Cup action on Wednesday evening with a resounding 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town that, while it might not necessarily have undoubtedly affirmed their title credentials, at the very least served notice that the Blues are back. A year after seeing their five-year reign as Youth Cup holders ended by Manchester United in a premature Third Round exit, a new crop of youngsters took centre stage…
