Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we are still missing the summer transfer window. Our special shot offers have gone and our landlord actually has some time to sit and have a chat now, but we were cheered up by the prospect of the emergency loan window that has been open since September 10th.
This of course gives players the option of joining Football League clubs on loan if they so wish, either to get some more playing time or simply to escape their current club.
It is also of course a god send for Football League clubs who may not necessarily be able to afford to buy a player, but can see them come in on loan and either boost their race for promotion or fight against the drop.
One side that has a huge amount of talented young stars is Chelsea – and Jose Mourinho’s side certainly have a few stars that could benefit from a loan spell to aid their development.
Here we take a look at five Blues players who may well go out on loan and gain that vital first team action this season.
