Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will send Nathaniel Chalobah, Lucas Piazon and Josh McEachran out on-loan this season as they look to continue their development at Stamford Bridge.
The trio enjoyed successful loan-spells last season, and the returning Blues manager feels that another loan-spell would be the most successful action to take.
Versatile midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah spent time on-loan at Watford last season, as his side narrowly missed out on the Premier League, losing to Crystal Palace in the play-off final. Talented winger Lucas Piazon was sent to Malaga to gain first team experience, and he performed well as they finished 6th in La Liga last season. Meanwhile centre-midfielder Josh McEachran was part of Tony Mowbray's Middlesbrough squad last season, and he made 38 appearances, scoring three goals.
And Jose Mourinho, speaking to reporters in Thailand, admitted that a loan move for Chalobah in particular would be the best course of action to take.
"We are thinking of letting him (Chalobah) go on loan for a last season. That is our intention. He knows, we have discussed that with him. He is a very, very good player. I like him very much. I am very impressed. For sure, a Chelsea player in the future. We think he is there," he said.
And Mourinho has not ruled out the possibility of a loan move to a fellow Premier League club, having spent time on-loan in the Championship last season.
"He could be in our squad already. But we think one more season and it will be his last one out on-loan. We will see whether or not it is a Premier League club," he added.
