According to Sky Sports, Championship side Swansea City are mulling over a potential loan bid for Chelsea attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer, who’s been one of the young players to survive the initial cut at training camp. He’s featured in both preseason friendlies so far, and some reports expect him to be included in the squad for the Japan trip as well.
That said, most do not expect Palmer to make the final first-team even in these supposedly youth-friendly times, although he’s been fairly impressive against League of Ireland opposition with his enthusiastic pressing and eye for a through-ball. He does have two more years left on his current Chelsea contract.
Earlier, Palmer’s involvement with preseason training has already resulted in Bristol City taking their interest elsewhere. He spent the second-half of last season at the Championship side, alongside Jay Dasilve and Tomáš Kalas, but unlike with those two, The Robins decided against making a bid for a permanent transfer.
But in case he is unable to impress Lampard, there will surely be plenty of other options for the 22- year-old, including Swansea City, who recently appointed former England U17 boss Steve Cooper as their new manager.
