Brazilian defender set for Chelsea exit on loan

The agent of young Chelsea full-back Wallace says that the Brazilian is likely to leave west London on loan again this summer.

Sky Sports reports how the Fluminense defender put pen to paper on a move to Chelsea in December 2012, before being loaned straight back to his old club for the remainder of the Premier League season.

Following the appointment of Jose Mourinho - who was unveiled at a press conference at Stamford Bridge earlier today - Wallace is now expected to arrive in England for pre-season training next month, but could conceivably leave Chelsea again before the 2013/14 campaign kicks off in August.

"Wallace is leaving Fluminense on Tuesday and I think it's important to say that he will go to England in early July," his representative, Fred Moraes confirmed in an interview with Lancenet.

"Our intention is that Wallace stays at Chelsea during his first season there but it will depend on what Jose Mourinho decides."

Chelsea have a tendency to let emerging young players take in temporary loan spells away from the club, in an attempt to accelerate their development with the opportunity to play regular first-team football.

It's something that might not be guaranteed if they were to remain in west London and players like Thibaut Courtois, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne have all benefitted from that policy.

"A loan deal has not been ruled out," added Moraes. "Clubs have already expressed interest again due to all the speculation.

"There are two Italian clubs that are interested and a German club have sounded us out too."
