The Daily Mail reports that Chelsea forward Jeremie Boga is set to join La Liga club Granada on a two-year loan deal. The 19-year-old will be holding talks with the Spanish club to figure out the details.  This follows rumors from last week, which had three teams, Granada, Sporting Gijon, and Nice, potentially vying for his services.

Boga arrived at Chelsea from French club ASPTT Marseille in 2008; he was allowed to move to England as his father already had a job in London. The teenager collected 101 appearances for Chelsea's U18 and U21 teams from 2011 to 2015, and moved on loan to Ligue 1 club Rennes on a season-long loan deal in August last year shortly after extending his Chelsea contract until until 2019.

Should Boga join Granada on a two-year deal, he would be the latest in a growing trend of multi-year loan deals.  Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen have blazed the trail, and now the likes of Lewis Baker, Charly Musonda, and Jeremie Boga are following.

Unlike Gladbach, Granada aren't much of a contender in the Spanish league.  Constantly facing the threat of relegation isn't exactly the best or most stable environment for a two-year loan spell, but a recall option on the contract should be enough to serve as insurance.
