When decisions are taken to send a player out on loan, the general idea is that the player will get something he is unable to get at Chelsea, regular first-team football.
Back in January, it was decided that, despite interest from several other clubs, our 21-year-old midfielder, Charly Musonda, would spend the next 18-months on loan at the Scottish champions Celtic.
At the time, it looked to be a decent decision.
However, the loan-deal hasn’t worked out and according to one news source, ESPN, Chelsea are set to end the loan-spell early.
Musonda is currently back at Cobham, undergoing treatment for a shoulder injury, but since making the loan move the Belgian has been used sparingly by Brendan Rodgers.
So far, Musonda has made just 3 starts with a further 5 appearances coming as a substitute.
Clearly, the amount of action isn’t acceptable to either Musonda or Chelsea and to that effect, our source is adamant that the loan spell will be ended early and that, next season, Musonda will be going out on-loan to a different club, one that will utilise his talents on a more regular basis and help develop his growth as a footballer.
A sensible decision we’d suggest.
