Chelsea Youngster On Loan?

Chelsea Youngster On Loan?

This is a new one for the rumour mill, apparently Chelsea are considering letting youngster Ryan Bertrand out on loan again this season and we are said to be interested.

The Sun suggest that Chelsea have slapped a £5m fee on the player who has been on successive loan spells over the past few years, most recently Nottingham Forest, before finally making his Chelsea debut last season and whilst the London club don't really want him off their books it's believed they would entertain another loan to get him further experience.

With that in mind they link us, Wolves, Bolton, Fulham and Nottingham Forest again as showing an interest in taking him.

I really don't see this one coming off myself, I know Bertrand is highly rated for his age and if you read around Chelsea comments there is a decent camp that want him to stay as back up for Ashley Cole, but if we are going to take another risk on a youngster surely it's in our own best interests to have them on a permanent deal rather than blooding them for others.

It's a difficult one really as we also have Van Aan Holt and I couldn't tell you who I think is better. What is obvious, is that whatever happens, one of them will have to go out on loan as they can't both play back up. There simply isn't the space. So, providing the one on loan is at a premier league club and playing and the one who stays gets some good game time for us, then I don't think we can really go wrong. I just hope someone doesn't come in with the measerly £5m. I think Bertrand will at the very least be as good as Baines and we know he's worth far more than £5m. Time to be street wise Chels!

Interesting choice, £5mil for a player who might not reach his potential, or stick to the loan in the hope the experience pushes him on further. Think I'm still with my initial thought, if we are going to take the risk, risk the money, don't like the idea of preparing players for others clubs. Van Aan Holt is supposed to be tasty though, do think he's a better bet as Cole's long term replacement from the little (admittedly) I've seen and read.
