With Marco Silva leaving his job at Hull City, and the Hull City managerial position being vacant, Russian boss Leonid Slutsky is now the new manager of relegated Hull City, and the Russian has confirmed that he has spoken with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich about taking some Chelsea youngsters on loan.

“In the Championship we have some loan options. It’s four players from one team, and it’s a possible situation to get some players from Chelsea,” Slutsky told Sky Sports.

“We spoke with him about this situation, but it’s not the absolute option. If we need some players, I think it’s possible.

“Chelsea have a lot of serious players – 37 on loan altogether, all over Europe. I think we will have some opportunities but I won’t speak about each player.

“I am very thankful to Mr Abramovich – he really helped me. He recommended me to Riversdown school [for English lessons] and helped me with tickets for each match, and I watched a lot of training sessions at Chelsea.

“I don’t think he will be disappointed with his decision to help me, but he can’t help me on the football pitch.”

Already, Hull have been linked with Chelsea player Tomas Kalas, who spent last season on loan with Fulham.
