Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will reportedly let as many as ten players leave the club before the start of the new season.
According to Daily Express, Lampard has sanctioned loan moves for eight Chelsea players while two other players will be allowed to leave the club on permanent deals.
Tiemoue Bakayoko, Jake Clarke-Salter, Trevor Chalobah, Lewis Baker, Lucas Piazon, Dujon Sterling, Matt Miazga and Izzy Brown are all expected to leave the club on loan deals this summer.
Bakayoko has played all Chelsea’s pre-season games so far but it seems the Frenchman’s performances haven’t impressed Lampard with the report claiming he is set to leave the Blues after another loan move.
Miazga is close to agreeing a deal to return to Championship side Reading on loan, having made a good impression last year.
Queens Park Rangers are reportedly interested in a loan deal for Sterling after the youngster impressed on loan at Coventry last season.
Lampard is apparently willing to let Kenneth Omeruo and Baba Rahman leave the club on a permanent basis.
After seven loan moves since joining Chelsea, Omeruo wants to leave Stamford Bridge on a permanent deal.
Speaking to BBC in March, the Nigerian international said: “The Chelsea management have never stopped me from making important career decisions and they’ve been very supportive.
“It will be a decision between both clubs, but personally I hope I’ll be a Leganes player for next season and beyond.
“I deserve stability in my career as a footballer. Leganes and Spanish football provides me with the continuity and right environment for career growth.
“After enduring instability with different loan moves, it’s time to finally settle down with my young family.
“Leganes fans and club officials have been awesome to my family which has helped me mentally and physically.
“It has also helped me with the national team and to connect with fans back home because La Liga is on television in Nigeria.
“I’d love to stay at this football club and hopefully that will happen.”
