Chelsea lend promising duo out

The high-profile potential exit at Stamford Bridge, which entered the deadline, surrounded Callum Hudson-Odoi. The winger was linked with Borussia Dortmund, but a deal could not be reached after Chelsea’s requirements were not met.

Chelsea’s official website announced that Ampadu had first extended his contract to 2024 before joining Italy. The 20-year-old is expected to be followed out the door by Tino Anjorin.
The exciting striker, 19, has excelled with the club’s under-23s in Premier League 2. But to ensure that his development is not hampered, the athletic states that he is currently under medical treatment before going to Lokomotiv Moscow on another year-long loan.
Outlet claims that the Russian side will have the opportunity to acquire Anjorin for 17 million pounds in January. However, should this clause be triggered, Chelsea will retain the option to buy the rising star back for £ 34m. from now on.
