Chelsea manager Frank Lampard may be working under a transfer embargo at Stamford Bridge but this week has seen several fringe players leave the club on loan as reported by The Blues’ official website.
Following a busy few hours prior to the closure of the transfer window, we take a look back at the completed deals to see who has left The Bridge.
Sunday saw Serbian midfielder Danilo Pantic leave the club on loan. He will spend the remainder of the season with Hungarian club MOL Fehervar following successful spells with Partizan Belgrade in the last two seasons.
The next departure was Ghanaian defender Baba Rahman. The 25-year-old has not featured for Chelsea at first team level in the last three seasons. The player has joined Spanish club Real Mallorca on loan, although he has also extended his contract with his parent club.
Brazilian winger Kenedy also departs on loan as he looks to finally get his career off the ground. The youngster spent the last season-and-a-half at Newcastle United but will now challenge himself in the Spanish La Liga with Getafe in the coming season.
Despite featuring for the Chelsea first team in pre-season, winger Lucas Piazon has been sent out on loan. The 25-year-old joins Italian club Chievo for what will be his seventh loan move away from his parent club.
Goalkeeper Jamal Blackman has again been loaned out. The former England youth international follows the same path as so many Blues before him in joining Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem on loan. The keeper has been on the books at Chelsea for more than 12 years but has never made a senior appearance.
In other news, Development Squad captain Marc Guehi has signed a new three-year-contract with The Blues. He remains with Joe Edwards’ Under-23s for the time being with no loan move having been agreed for the player.
