When you mention the idea of loan spells to Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, all our landlord witnesses is a host of frowns and rolled eyes.
The club of course sent one of their forwards on loan this summer and have seen Romelu Lukaku come on leaps and bounds since then.
They have also seen their current forwards struggle somewhat. As one of our punters quips, quite if they should be sending anyone else out on loan, or attempting to get their forward back is a matter to be debated.
Lukaku has no January release clause in his loan contract, thus the club have to make do with what they have at present. The Belgian forward aside, once the Blues fans get over their touchiness on the subject, a couple of names are mentioned in connection with loan spell this winter.
Some simply need the playing time to advance their careers, others just need to play – especially with it being a World Cup year. Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho 2.0, there have been certain players left out in the cold, and they will be prime candidates for a temporary move away.
With that in mind, we have moved over to the bar and attempted to compile a list of five Chelsea players who could well be going out on loan this winter.
