Tomas Kalas is likely to move in January, according to his agent

The Czech defender is looking for regular minutes this spring, after an injury plagued fall

The list of Chelsea players who will be looking for a new home on loan during the transfer window is already pretty long. This morning saw some quotes from the agent of Tomas Kalas, indicating that we can probably add the yong defender to that list:

"Zájem Tomáše i Chelsea je, aby na jaře pravidelně hrál. V průběhu ledna budeme hledat klub, ve kterém by mohl pravidelně nastupovat na postu středního obránce a aby to byl klub, který se filozofií blíží Chelsea."

-Viktor Kolar

Basically, the injuries suffered by Kalas this fall have hurt his chances of carving out a place in the squad, and he'll be looking for somewhere that he'll get regular playing time this spring. The club will also be looking to ensure he's used as a center back, as opposed to being used on the right.

Kalas is an interesting one, as he's one of the few potential loanees who is probably ready for minutes at the highest level. That said, just getting regular minutes is probably more important than finding the toughest challenge available, so finding a loan to a club which would start Kalas immediately should probably be the club's priority.
