Islam Feruz will return to Chelsea after it was confirmed by Cardiff City manager Russell Slade that he would not be taking up the option to acquire the young striker on loan for the remainder of the season.

Feruz had been on trial with Cardiff this past week in order for Slade to run the rule over the Scotland under-21 international and decide whether he felt the need to add him to his squad on a temporary deal.

The teenager, however, will not be making a move to Cardiff City Stadium, as confirmed by Slade following the club’s 1-0 defeat of Fulham in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

“We’ve made a decision on Islam and he’s gone back to Chelsea,” Slade told reporters.

Feruz was acquired by Chelsea from the Celtic academy over three years ago amid much controversy, and the Premier League leaders eventually paid £300,000 in compensation to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

The 19-year-old is regarded as an international star of the future for Scotland but has yet to make a first-team appearance for Chelsea, with his appearances restricted to the club’s under-21 side.

Feruz was afforded an opportunity to further his education with a season-long loan move to Greek club OFC Crete but this was cancelled, and Chelsea are likely to continue to search for a club who will take him.
