Kalas considering Chelsea exit

Published Add your comment

Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas is considering a move away from west London in a bid to gain more regular football, and says that he would be open to joining another English club, reports Sky Sports.

The 20-year-old has made just one senior appearance since joining the Blues from Sigma Olomouc in 2010, and that came as a brief cameo in the Capital One Cup.

Jose Mourinho named Kalas on the Chelsea bench for the 3-0 victory over Southampton on New Year's Day, but may consider allowing the Czech to leave Stamford Bridge on a temporary loan deal.

"I would go anywhere where it would give me what I want to keep improving," said Kalas. "The main thing is to be playing regularly.

"I'm not saying to be an automatic starter, I will be happy to fight for my position bit I want a more realistic chance to play than I have here.

"The English leagues are known for being physical and fast, so maybe it would be good to stay here. The best scenario would be if I could stay in my current home but it's not a condition.

"In the Championship it's good that there are even more fixtures, but we will meet with the management and see what's next."

Chelsea have loaned a number of promising young stars to Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem - a club where Kalas has enjoyed two season-long loan spells in the past.

However, the full-back - who is under contract with the Blues until 2017 - would favour a different destination, were he to pen another short-term switch this January.
