A busy end to January kicked off in earnest this week with goals, moves and news aplenty. Let’s get stuck in. Headliners Tammy Abraham has been a constant this season, not just picking up where he left off in Championship football after spending 2016-17 at Bristol City, but improving at Aston Villa.

The turbulence of the January transfer window has already made an impact on the loan army at Chelsea, for both good and bad, as this week’s report shall duly reveal.

The winter break across Europe has accounted for a big chunk of Chelsea’s loanees enjoying a festive holiday, but there has been plenty to talk about from those who have played, as we hit the fifty-goal mark for the season too.

Two more goals in the past seven days nudge us closer to the half-century mark before the end of the calendar year, with Tammy Abraham and Kylian Hazard providing the goods.

After all the goals in last week’s Loan Report, we have none this weekend, after a quiet seven days overall. Let’s catch up on how everybody’s doing anyway.
