Chelsea boss Tuchel confirms Barkley loan departure option

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has refused to rule out the possibility of Ross Barkley securing a move away in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old midfielder has started just four games for the European champions so far this season – only one of which has come in the Premier League.

As a result of his lack of game time, Barkley has been linked with a loan return to former side Everton this month.

The Chelsea boss said: “We haven’t discussed it yet [a loan deal]. It depends what Ross wants and what possibilities there are and what makes sense. Let’s see.

“There’s always a chance it is not like it is the FA Cup and here’s your chance. There’s always a chance to make it onto the pitch, especially with a lot of covid and injury cases.

“The situation has not changed, not for Ross, not for anybody else.”
