Chelsea have announced that rising star Ethan Ampadu will play out the 2020/21 season on loan with Sheffield United.
The 19-year-old could play a huge part in Chris Wilder’s upcoming Premier League campaign, who will no doubt be pushing for a spot in the top six. However, despite it being a big career move for Ampadu, a lot of Chelsea fans aren’t happy with the decision.
Will Chelsea win a trophy under Frank Lampard?
The official Chelsea Instagram account has wished the Wales international good luck on his loan spell. Blues fans have flooded the comments section and many of them are demanding answers on why the defender was allowed to leave on loan, with many believing he is ready to be a part of Frank Lampard’s squad.
Ampadu has made a total of 12 senior appearances for the West Londoners, including his Premier League debut back in 2017 against Huddersfield (via Transfermarkt). The centre-back spent last season on loan with RB Leipzig but only played seven matches across all competitions for the German outfit.
Chelsea fans clearly thought Ampadu was ready to be integrated into the senior squad at Stamford Bridge. However, after a season with fellow Premier League side Sheffield United, next campaign could finally be his time to shine in the Blues’ defence.
