Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern barely see a day go by without watching a Blues player head out on loan, it’s become so insignificant to them that they don’t even bother asking the staff who it is usually, but this one may have caught them by surprise.
According to reports from Sky Sports, Chelsea full-back, Baba Rahman is set to head out on loan to Shalke, and is currently undergoing a medical as we sit here deciding whether or not it’s too early for the first tipple of TT Ale of the week.
The 22-year-old made the move to Stamford Bridge last summer, but was used predominantly as cover for Cesar Azpilicueta, however he did enjoy more of a run towards the end of the season, under Gus Hiddink.
Chelsea aren’t ever afraid to send a player out on loan, as of January this year, they had a whopping 28 players gaining experience away from the Bridge, incliding Nathan Ake who has recently been shipped out again, this time to Bournemouth.
Chelsea fans, we didn’t see this loan move coming, did you? Will some time away from London help Baba? Or should Conte have kept him? Let us know below…
