One more player is set to leave Chelsea on loan. According to David Amoyal on Gianluca Di Marzio's website, Serie A club Napoli have agreed a loan deal with Chelsea for English midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah. But while Amoyal claims there is an option to buy clause in the deal, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says there isn't.

News emerged last week claiming that Nathaniel Chalobah preferred a loan abroad rather than staying in England to play for Reading in the Championship. The move also follows a seemingly new pattern from the club, with only Tomas Kalas playing in England's second division for Middlesbrough after his mildly-successful spell for Boro in the second half of last season. It's also a good sign from the club as they take a leadership role in sending English players to experience football outside of England, something that has been heavily discussed and supported in the past few years.
