Chelsea set to cancel loan deals for two youngsters
Chelsea look set to cancel the loan deals for Diego Moreira and Andrey Santos when the transfer window reopens.
Moreira and Santos were sent out on loan to Nottingham Forest and Lyon respectively last summer, but neither have got regular minutes.
Santos has played just seven minutes of Premier League football over the course of the season under manager Steve Cooper.
Moreira, on the other hand, has been limited to only 75 minutes for Les Gones, who are currently bottom of French Ligue 1.
Their manager has been sacked today and the Blues are aware that his situation may not improve under the head coach.
Both players are set to be recalled at the turn of the year. The Blues may have to compensate Forest and Lyon over the same.
Suppose the duo return this winter, only one of those could join a foreign club on loan. A club is allowed a maximum of seven overseas loan exits.
Six of those spots would be already occupied and the Blues may have to consider a Premier League loan stint for one of the pairing.
