Chelsea Sarriball XI of English youngsters out on loan who are good enough amid transfer ban… including Reece James, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham


CHELSEA don’t have to worry if they can’t overturn their transfer ban this summer.

There’s plenty of talent to be found among their loan and youth ranks.

Stars including Kurt Zouma, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi could all play parts at the club next season.

But there are plenty of young, English aces out on loan who could help Maurizio Sarri’s cause.

Here, SunSport takes a look at a Sarriball XI made up entirely of English whizzkids currently out on loan from Chelsea.

GK: Bradley Collins (22) – Burton Albion

COLLINS has been at Stamford Bridge since 2010, helping the Under-18s win the UEFA Youth League and FA Youth Cup in 2015.

He has made 34 appearances in all competitions for League One side Burton Albion this season.

And he could be the ideal replacement for veteran shot-stopper Willy Caballero, who is out of contract this summer.

RB: Reece James (19) – Wigan

JAMES began his Chelsea career at the age of six, captaining the youth side to the FA Youth Cup in 2018 while being named Academy Player of the Season.

He has made 43 appearances for Wigan Athletic this term, and was named in the Championship Team of the Season.

Cesar Azpilicueta has struggled at right-back under Sarri, with Davide Zappacosta also failing to impress, and James could be set for a shot in the first team after penning a four-year deal in 2018.

CB: Fikayo Tomori (21) – Derby

TOMORI joined Chelsea’s Under-8s and went on to help the club secure consecutive UEFA Youth Leagues and FA Cup Youth Cups in 2015 and 2016.

The versatile ace made his senior Blues debut during a 1-1 draw against Leicester in the final game of the 2015/16 Premier League campaign.

Tomori has played 31 times under Chelsea legend Frank Lampard at Derby County, and also has 12 England U-21 caps to his name.

CB: Trevor Chalobah (19) – Ipswich Town

CHALOBAH is the brother of Premier League winner and Watford midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah.

He can play anywhere across the backline and has won the UEFA Youth League, the FA Youth Cup and Under-18 Premier League title.

He has played 40 times for Ipswich Town this season and his versatility could prove useful to Sarri.

LB: Jay Dasilva (20) – Bristol City

DASILVA left Luton Town for Chelsea in 2012 and has gone on to win three FA Youth Cups and two UEFA Youth Leagues.

He helped England’s Under-19s win the 2017 European Championships, and was also named Charlton Athletic’s Fans’ Player of the Year for the 17/18 season.

Dasilva, who has nine England Under-21 caps to his name, has played 28 times for Bristol City this term and was once hailed as “better than any current Premier League left-back” by Arsenal icon Ian Wright during the 2015 UEFA Youth League final victory over Shakhtar Donetsk.

CM: Mason Mount (20) – Derby

MOUNT has emerged as a Chelsea fan favourite despite never making a senior appearance.

He has won two FA Youth Cups, the UEFA Youth League and the Under-19 Euros, claiming the tournament’s Golden Player award.

A successful stint in the Dutch top flight saw Mount crowned Vitesse’s Player of the Year last season, and he has since impressed in 33 appearances under idol Lampard at Derby.

CM: Kasey Palmer (22) – Bristol City

PALMER has numerous trophies to his name, winning the Under-21 Premier League, two FA Youth Cups and two UEFA Youth Leagues.

He helped England win the 2016 Toulon Tournament and has enjoyed loan spells at Huddersfield Town and Derby County.

Palmer played 17 times for Blackburn Rovers in the first half of the season before linking up with Bristol City in January, featuring 11 times so far for his new club.

CM: Lewis Baker (23) – Reading

BAKER was crowned Chelsea’s Young Player of the Year in 2014, and won the Toulon Tournament’s Golden Boot as he fired England’s U21s to glory in 2016.

He has spent time out on loan with Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons, Vitesse, Middlesbrough and Leeds.

Baker left Marcelo Bielsa’s side in January to join Reading and has featured 15 times so far for the Championship side.

RW: Dujon Sterling (19) – Coventry City

STERLING is primarily a right-back but his incredible speed and athleticism has sometimes seen him feature as a flying winger.

He has an incredible array of trophies, with two FA Youth Cups, two UEFA Youth Leagues, one U18 Premier League title and the 2017 U19 Euros under his belt.

Sterling featured twice for Chelsea in the 2017/18 season in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, and he has played 34 times for Coventry City in League One this term.

ST: Tammy Abraham (21) – Aston Villa

ABRAHAM already has three senior Chelsea appearances to his name having joined the club in 2004.

He won the 2018 Toulon Tournament in 2018 with England and has scored 24 goals in 36 games for Aston Villa this season.

Abraham has also spent time on loan at Swansea, but his season with Bristol City which resulted in 26 goals from 48 appearances saw him named their Player of the Season in 2017.

LW: Izzy Brown (22) – Leeds

BROWN joined Chelsea from West Brom in 2013 and made his sole senior appearance during the 2014/15 campaign.

He won two FA Youth Cups and one UEFA Youth League with the academy before taking in loan spells at Vitesse and Rotherham.

Brown won the Championship play-offs with Huddersfield in 2017 before playing for Brighton in the Premier League, but he has made just one appearance for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds this term after joining with a cruciate ligament injury before tearing his hamstring on his comeback in November.
