According to Football. London, Chelsea have already confirmed that they are going to let midfield ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek join Crystal Palace on loan this summer. They made the announcement accidentally on their website, letting the Englishman to make a mark in the Premier League once again as he did in the last season for the same team on loan.

The 22-year-old made it to the England World Cup squad and made four appearances for the Three Lions. However, he has been struggling to find a place in the first team squad of his parent club and it seems they are happy to let him leave again. 

Loftus Cheek made a name for himself at the Selhurst Park in the last term and helped his side finish the season on a comfortable position. After a disastrous start to the term with seven losses in the first seven games, the Eagles were destined to be relegated. But they, under the tutelage of Roy Hodgson, chose to fight back and with players like Loftus Cheek and Wilfried Zaha leading the way with their brilliant performances, saved their position in the top flight for one more season.

The report also states that the move can be the part of a deal between the two London clubs, which might see Zaha arrive at Stamford Bridge before the transfer window closes. The 25-year-old could cost the Blues above £60m if they really want to land him this summer and Sarri letting the Englishman joining them can work in their favour.
