Report: Chelsea player could still leave on loan this summer despite earning Tuchel's trust

Thomas Tuchel has shown faith in Trevoh Chalobah but could still sanction the defender’s transfer away from Chelsea before the window closes.

According to the Guardian, Chalobah might be allowed to leave on loan this month despite his excellent start to senior life with the Blues.

The 22-year-old has been on quite a rollercoaster of emotions over the past week.

He was handed his first-team Chelsea debut in the Super Cup final last Wednesday, an occasion that did not seem to faze him.

This was followed up by starting his maiden Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Again, the boyhood Blue played brilliantly and even got on the scoresheet to top off what’s been a sensational seven days for the young man.

His sudden inclusion has caused some to question whether the potential signing of Jules Kounde is necessary.

A delay in any possible deal for the Sevilla centre-back is certainly benefitting Chalobah, as he continues to earn a run out in the side.

However, the Cobham academy product cannot guarantee his regular inclusion forever.

Those who make the big decisions at Stamford Bridge might decide he is better off going on loan again for another term.

Regardless of the fact Chalobah impressed Tuchel in pre-season- as per the Guardian- and that he has forced his way into the reckoning in the past two fixtures.

It would certainly seem a slap in the face if he is made to move on once again.
