Derby County looks like a new team this season in the Championship. The Rams are placed second in the league and have looked extremely entertaining this season. They are also the second highest scoring team in their league and look set for a promotion next season. After a dull season, last time around that saw the club finish ninth in the league, Derby have managed to turn things around so far this season.
They have now further strengthened their side with the addition of Chelsea youngster Kasey Palmer on loan. The attacking midfielder was impressive while on loan at Huddersfield Town and helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League for this season. However, the unfortunate injury made things difficult for him this season and the Blues cancelled his loan deal after 18 months. He has now been farmed out to Derby County.
Michael Emanelo, upon his resignation, said that he was proud of Chelsea’s loan system and went on to add that Andreas Christensen was proof that the system worked wonders. He went on to add that Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori will soon follow in on the footsteps of the young Dan.
This was his statement. “Christensen will be a superb player. I see on a regular basis that Jake Clarke-Salter and Fikayo Tomori are going to be outstanding players. They are young and I don’t know if they decide to get fat. There’s nothing I can do about that. If they continue the way that they are, they will make it because they have great talent, there’s no doubt about that.”
“There is a coordinated effort from everybody to want to make this happen. Not just because it feels good, and it is nice to have a backbone the fans can relate to and support. But with the investment we are making and where we think the game is going and the competition that we have, you can’t just buy your way out of trouble all the time”.
While Christensen’s development testifies Emanelo’s comment, his statement is far from complete.Chelsea have produced excellent youth products over the last few years. These kids have won every major trophy at the youth level. They have then been loaned out for further development.
After that, things go horribly wrong. Christensen is probably the only second player after John Terry to rise through the club ranks and the only one in Emanelo’s ten-year tenure at the club.
Chelsea have lost fine young products in the process, many they have gone on to rue. It now seems that the Blues could be on their way to regret losing out on yet another player.
