Burnley have announced the signing of Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah on loan until January.
The England U21 international, who starred at Championship duo Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough on loan last term, now looks set to gain Premier League experience under Sean Dyche at the Clarets.
The signing of Chalobah will certainly excite Burnley fans as the club go in search of success this term. Dyche will be desperate to keep the club in the Premier League, and Chalobah looks set to play a key role at the club in the coming months.
His versatility will also help the club as he can also play at centre-half, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will jump straight into the first team for the club's next Premier League fixtures.
Having secured their first Premier League point against Manchester United this past weekend, Chalobah and Co. will be hoping to pick up a victory against Crystal Palace on September 13 at Selhurst Park.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, will be hoping the youngster continues his progression at the Clarets. It's no surprise that the 'Special One' has allowed the Englishman to head out on loan as he already has an array of talent at his disposal in the middle of the park at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Ramires and Co. all plying their trade at Stamford Bridge, so it's unlikely that Chalobah will break through into the first team anytime soon.
Chelsea have made a fine start to this Premier League season, having secured three wins out of three and will be looking to pick up another win when they play host to Welsh outfit Swansea City after the international break.
It remains to be seen as to whether the youngster will return to the Bridge in January or whether Burnley will look to striker another deal with the Blues for the player's services. It may well depend on how he gets on in the coming months, in what could prove a key period of his career.
