This time last year, Tino Anjorin was knocking on the Chelsea first-team door under Frank Lampard, and while he impressed incoming new head coach Thomas Tuchel, he would not be able to add to his five first-team appearances. A bit of bad luck in the summer then prevented him from having the opportunity to impress a la Trevoh Chalobah, all of which led to a lofty loan to Lokomotiv Moscow, who seemed to hype him up even more than the most optimistic fan of the Chelsea Academy.
Anjorin would make just 9 apperances (3 starts), scoring one, for Lokomotiv before suffering a broken metatarsal and returning to Chelsea for treatment. Meanwhile, Lokomotiv director Ralf Rangnick left the club as well, joining Manchester United instead, effectively also ending Anjorin’s loan.
The 20-year-old now joins fellow loanee Levi Colwill at Huddersfield, who are pushing for promotion from the Championship.
Good luck, Tino (and Levi)!
