With the transfer deadline now past, Chelsea will not be able to send any other players on loan for another week. Now that we've reached a bit of a lull in terms of roster movement it seems a good time to review where our players have been loaned out to. Chelsea currently have 10 players who've been loaned out to various locations, and we're going to try to take a look in on those players around the beginning and middle of every month (look for the first recap today or early tomorrow). I'm sure a few players will be added to this list when the lower division transfer period re-opens next week, but here are the players currently out on loan.
- Thibaut Courtois - The 19 year old Belgian who was the first signing of the AVB era is currently out on a season long loan at La Liga side Atletico Madrid. He's already establisjed himself as the first choice keeper there, so playing time will not be an issue.
- Sam Walker - Walker is a 6'6" 20 year old shotstopper who anchored the club's run to the FA Youth Cup two seasons ago. He's currently on loan at Northhampton Town in League 2 where he is also entrenched as the club's number one.
At the moment, this is the entire Chelsea contingent of loaned players. I'm sure quite a few more will be heading out to the lower levels in England in the coming weeks, and Graham and I will be sure to keep you updated as those deals go down. We'll also do our best to keep you informed about their performances while away on loan. Best of luck on loan guys...do Chelsea proud.
