'I believe': Manager says 20-year-old Chelsea loanee is one of the 'most important young talents' in Britain

Huddersfield Town manager Carlos Corberan has raved about the quality of Chelsea loanee Tino Anjorin, who he’s managed to sign on loan until the end of the season.

Championship club Huddersfield, who sit seventh in the league, announced the loan signing of Anjorin during yesterday’s transfer deadline day.

The 20-year-old spent the first half of the season out on loan with Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow, scoring in one of their Europa League games. However, a foot injury meant he returned to Stamford Bridge early for recovery.

He’s now dropping down to the Championship for the rest of the season and he may be back playing this month.

Huddersfield’s head coach Corberan is clearly a massive admirer of his new addition. He’s even described him as one of the “most important young talents” in Britain, which is quite the bold claim.

His reputation can really soar if he can help seventh-placed Huddersfield force their way into the play-offs and to promotion back to the Premier League.

“I believe Tino is one of the most important young talents in Britain,” Corberan said.

“He is now in the last part of his recovery from injury, and we expect he can be integrated into our squad during February.

“As soon as he is fully recovered, he will increase the possibilities of our squad. He can play in different attacking positions – as a 10, 11 or 7 – and he has the skills to make a real impact in our attacking play.”

Anjorin has bright Chelsea future

Anjorin definitely looks like one of the players on Chelsea’s books that can force their way into Thomas Tuchel’s plans at a later date.

The attacking midfielder has already played five first-team games for the Blues since coming through the Cobham academy.

In addition, Tuchel previously described the youngster as “confident”, “strong” and “creative” after watching him up close in training.

It should be a great test to see how he copes with the physicality of the Championship, as he looks ready-made to be a success.
