Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted that Ruben Loftus-Cheek could head out on-loan this transfer window.
With all the signings that we have made this summer window, it has meant that the talents at the club, like Loftus-Cheek, will struggle for game time over the course of the season, which will hinder the development.
That has led to speculation in the media that the likes of Aston Villa and Southampton are both been linked with a loan move for the midfielder, on order to give him the game time that he is seeking over the next 12 months.
And although Lampard maintains Loftus-Cheek is held in the highest regard, he finds himself in a difficult position in terms of current opportunities and may have to be sent out on-loan this window.
“I am very open with Ruben. We have had a couple of conversations in the last week. He is fit as a fiddle so he could play week in, week out, but he needs to play,” said Lampard on the club website
“He has done a lot of work now and would have been playing a lot of games earlier if it wasn’t for lockdown and Project Restart.
“There is a possibility Ruben might go out (on loan) to play games because I think that would be great for him.”
Look, if Loftus-Cheek is not getting the game time that he needs, then yes the best thing would to be sent out on-loan.
It would be a shame to see him leave on loan, but sometimes it is needed.
