- Chelsea sent Ross Barkley and Loftus-Cheek on loan spells on deadline day
- The Blues now have a total of 25 players on loan this season valued at £121million
- Victor Moses and Nathan Baxter are among those that could be shipped out soon
Chelsea saw Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek leave the club on loan at the just concluded summer transfer window making it a total of 25 players out of Stamford Bridge on loan.
The Blues’ 'loan army' is valued at £121million after the transfer window, however it could be extended if some players leave the club to join lower sides down the English pyramid.
Victor Moses, Nathan Baxter and Danny Drinkwater are among those that could be shipped out in the coming days.
With Ruben Loftus-Cheek completing a short move to Fulham on deadline day, Premier League club Chelsea have players scattered across Europe from Portugal to Serbia via Spain, France and Belgium.
In fact, some of the club’s players could be described as near-perpetual loanees including Izzy Brown and Lucas Piazon.
However several clubs are monitoring the progresses of young talents such as defender Marc Guehi, at Swansea City, and striker Armando Broja at Vitesse.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that with the transfer window now closed, Barcelona failed in a bid to sign three players, while Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho could also not get the player he wanted as it never happened.
Barcelona did everything possible to sign Eric Garcia from Manchester City, but the Premier League club failed to reduce their asking price of €20million for the player despite his contract ending this season.
