Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas will again play his football away from Stamford Bridge after joining Sky Bet Championship club Bristol City on a season-long loan deal according to The Blues’ official website.

The 25-year-old Czech Republic international centre-back has spent the last two seasons with Fulham and the player has now agreed to another season in the second tier of English football.

It has been reported that Kalas will spend the remainder of the current campaign with Bristol City. Chelsea have a good relationship with the South West club after the success of striker Tammy Abraham’s loan at Ashton Gate a couple of seasons ago and they will be hoping for a similar positive result from Kalas’ move.

The Czech defender joined Chelsea from Sigma Olomouc in a reported £5.2 million deal more than eight years ago but Kalas has featured on just four occasions for The Blues.

Since moving to Stamford Bridge, Kalas has been loaned back to former club Sigma Olomouc, spent time with Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem and has played in Germany with FC Koln. Loan moves in England have followed with the defender having enjoyed two spells with both Middlesbrough and Fulham.

Kalas was a Sky Bet Championship runner-up with Boro while he won the play-off final with Fulham last term. He will be looking to complete a promotion treble with new club Bristol City.
