Stipe Perica returns to NAC Breda for a season-long loan

Not unexpectedly, another one of Chelsea's three Croatian young prospects has gone back out on loan.  With the UK not relaxing work permit rules for Croatian nationals until next summer, this was always going to be the case of Mario Pašalić (already at Elche in Spain), Matej Delač, and Stipe Perica.  While Delač has yet to find a home (after getting to tour Europe with the Chelsea first-team), Perica has returned to his loan team from last season.

Perica made 25 league appearances (21 of those off the bench) and scored 6 goals (tied for second most on the team) as NAC Breda narrowly avoided the drop in the Eredivisie.  Hopefully he'll manage to carve out something more than just a super sub role this season.

Perica becomes the second player to move to NAC Breda from Chelsea this summer, joining permanent transfer Isak Ssewankambo.  The team also signed promising forward Kingsley Boateng on a free transfer from AC Milan, as leading scorer Rydell Poepon returned to his parent club Valenciennes.  Basically, there should be plenty of opportunities for 19-year-old Perica, a fixture in the Croatia U21 national football team, to continue his development.
