Frank Lampard has already shown this season that he’s not afraid to give youth a chance to shine in the Chelsea first team.

Already this season the likes of Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount have shown that given the chance they are more than capable of not only holding their own at this level of football but have the class to reach the very top of the profession.

Before the season started, many Chelsea supporters expected Reece James to also force his way into the starting eleven, once the defender had recovered from an injury he had picked up.

James has started the occasional game, but the form of Cesar Azpilicueta has seen James spend more time on the substitutes bench than on the pitch.

As a result, Frank Lampard is now faced with a difficult decision to make.

According to The Sun, the Newcastle United boss, Steve Bruce, would quite like to take the 19-year-old to St James Park, on loan, for the remainder of the season once the January transfer window opens.

Is it a move you’d approve?

Will Lampard let the youngster go to ensure he gets regular first-team football or is Reece James destined for greater things, at Stamford Bridge, in the second half of the season?

  • It’s important to keep James at Chelsea because if by chance aspi gets an injury “God forbid” we can have an alternative and also for effective rotation of players. Should we loan him, we’ll likely have deficit in no2.

  • James should not be allowed to go bcos chelsea has so many games like carabo cup, premier ship, championship n FA cup. If one get injured one will standin for other. The coach can decide to rest one for other. So keep James

  • In as much as the other young lads like Mason mount,Tamunor Abraham, Fikayo Tomori et al, has seized the opportunity to prove, that they are as fit as fiddle,the gaffer is still understudying Reece James to snap his. There is a transition that Frank will exploit ultimately. So Reece had a future with the blues!

  • Chelsea knows the frailties in the defence and the number of injuries so will never sanction the loan of James. Reece time is here already, let him “pullisic” for his shirt.
