Chelsea to loan out Ruben Loftus-Cheek?

Loftus-Cheek could be loaned out in January

Chelsea are considering the prospect of loaning out Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the second half of the season. The 20-year-old has yet to cement a regular place in the first-team setup.

According to The London Evening Standard, Antonio Conte is open to loan offers for his young midfielder as he seeks to offer him first-team football during the ongoing campaign.

The England Under-21 international is likely to receive a couple of transfer requests in the New Year, but the Blues are much content to see his progress on a temporary deal away from the club.

Conte has previously suggested that Loftus-Cheek could be a future striker at Stamford Bridge due to his ability to run through defences, and only time wil tell whether he could transform into a world-class talent.

Loftus-Cheek netted twice in 17 appearances for Chelsea last term.
