Josh McEachran could make a move to Swansea on loan, according to ClubCall, with the midfielder hoping to build up more game time to break into the Chelsea starting line-up.
At just 18 years of age, McEachran has shown great potential, and clubs have competed to sign the youngster while he finds limited game time at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have continually insisted that they won’t let McEachran go on loan, but the midfielder wants to improve, and with just two appearances for the Blues so far this season, he isn’t getting the experience he had hoped for.
And while Chelsea are hoping to create a star in McEachran, if he leaves on a temporary basis for half the season, Villas-Boas might reportedly be tempted to garner a deal for the youngster.
Roman Abramovich is said to have ordered Villas-Boas to use young players like McEachran when Chelsea play Cup matches, but with limited games available to the England Under 21 international, Swansea might be a better option if the deal is a short one.
