The January transfer window will open in just two days’ time, and Chelsea was expected to be quite busy in one particular department.
We are unlikely to see much in terms of arrivals at Stamford Bridge, but there are a number of players who could be on their way out the exit door next month.
This could include a number of their academy stars who Chelsea are considering sending out on loan to get some vital first-team senior experience for their development.
But the club has stopped any discussions for loan moves out right now because Frank Lampard wants to assess some of the players and could use them against Morecombe in the FA Cup.
According to Goal, the club has stopped discussions on loan moves for academy players until mid-January to allow Frank Lampard to select as many Under-23s stars as possible for the Cup match.
Highly rated youngsters Tino Anjorin, Henry Lawrence, and Lewis Bate are among the youngsters who will likely start against the League Two side, Goal believes.
