Chelsea confirm Wallace will head out on loan, but don't tell us where

Hey look, a trophy! - Thananuwat Srirasant

Luckily we got to see the youngster in Chelsea blue earlier today, as the boss confirmed he's not staying with the club for the 2013/14 season

Today many Chelsea fans got their first look at young right back Wallace, and the overwhelming majority seemed mostly pleased with what they saw. There was both good and bad in his performance, but after winning the penalty that led to the game's only goal, it was widely viewed as a successful 45 minutes.

Despite the impressive debut, it doesn't look as if we'll be seeing much of Wallace in Chelsea blue this season. Jose Mourinho talked about the young Brazilian in his post-game remarks, and had the following to say:

'Wallace is a very good player. He is mature for his age - comfortable on the ball and he likes to attack. He is not staying with us because we have Ivanovic and Azpilicueta for the same position, and also because he is not from an EU country and we need to get him a visa and it is maybe too early for the committee, so he will go on loan for one season in Europe but I think you can see the kid has talent and is another good investment by the club.'

I'm sure there will be plenty of demand for the youngster, as teams in need of both money and a right back aren't likely to find anything better than him out there. We already know that several Serie A sides had some interest, although Roma may have filled that need when they added Maicon from Machester City.

I think the majority here will be pleased to see he'll be loaned this season, as between Tomas Kalas, Cesar Azpilicueta, and the exceptionally lean looking Branislav Ivanovic there just won't be a ton of minutes for him at Chelsea. Getting a season of regular starts somewhere in Europe will undoubtedly do the youngster loads of good, and can only help the Blues down the line.
