The Loan Reports is back. Every Sunday evening during the 2011-12 season, TheChels.net will take a look at Chelsea’s young loanees as they extend and further their developments by taking in spells away from Stamford Bridge. Two reserve team players headed out this week to take the current total at other clubs to five, and it’s a tally which is only going to grow in the coming weeks, with up…

The Football League season in England may have finished last weekend, but we’ve still got a handful of young Chelsea loan starts to catch up with, starting with another goal for Daniel Sturridge. The England Under-21 international grabbed his eighth goal in just eleven appearances for Bolton on Saturday but it wasn’t enough to earn even a share of the spoils away to Blackpool. Having spurned a close-range opportunity in…

Many of Chelsea’s loan contingent signed off for 2010-11 this weekend as the English Football League campaign drew to a close, but for a few, there are still some loose ends to tie up. Starting in the top flight, Michael Mancienne started his second consecutive game at centre-back for Wolves, who picked up a huge three points in the battle to avoid relegation by beating West Brom 3-1 in the…

After a wildly successful week last time out, many of Chelsea’s loanees came down to earth with a bump this week, with many suffering the adversity brought upon by end of season tension. There was, however, another reason to celebrate, as one player scored his first professional goal, and we shall begin there. Gael Kakuta was handed just his second start during a loan spell at Fulham which could have…

With five goals and a host of impressive performances, it’s been another strong week for a group of Chelsea loanees who have had a largely impressive season. Daniel Sturridge and Fabio Borini both found the back of the net again, but not many will have predicted Jeffrey Bruma scoring his first senior goal from 30 yards out, and even fewer will have called him following it up with another later…

By scoring his fourth goal in five appearances for Swansea, Fabio Borini once again leads the headlines as we catch up with Chelsea’s young loanees. With Daniel Sturridge cup-tied for Bolton’s Wembley date with Stoke, and with Michael Mancienne (Wolves) and Gael Kakuta (Fulham) enjoying a free weekend due to cup rescheduling, attentions turned to England’s lower leagues. Borini’s latest effort came in the 53rd minute of the Swans’ trip…

Goals from Daniel Sturridge, Fabio Borini and Patrick van Aanholt, plus a red card for Sam Walker and the premature end of Conor Clifford’s spell at Notts County headline another hectic week in the land of the Chelsea loanee. Bolton’s 3-0 win over West Ham on Saturday saw England Under-21 striker Sturridge add two more goals to his Wanderers total, taking him to six since joining the club on loan…

This issue of The Loan Report takes a quick look at the weekend action amongst Chelsea’s young loanees, as clubs returned to domestic action after a fortnight of international jaunts. It was a case of maintaining the status quo in the Premier League, with Daniel Sturridge impressing whilst Gael Kakuta and Michael Mancienne saw no playing time. Sturridge had an excellent first half against Birmingham City for Bolton Wanderers, and…

With the last fortnight seeing the football calendar largely taken over by international commitments, the latest instalment of The Loan Report will also catch up on how Chelsea’s youngsters have been doing on their travels. Starting at home, the international break meant no action in the Premier League and The Championship, but there was selected activity in Leagues One and Two. Conor Clifford was an unused substitute for Notts County…

Fabio Borini this week became the nineteenth Chelsea player to go out on loan this season, and wasted little time in making an impact. We start this week’s loan report with the Italian’s impressive debut. Borini, who has spent the season with the reserve team due to a contract dispute, linked up with former reserve team boss Brendan Rodgers at promotion-chasing Swansea. He was thrust straight into action on Saturday…
