Report: Chelsea set to offload Kasey Palmer on permanent basis for £4m
Chelsea attacker Kasey Palmer is reportedly set to turn his loan move into a permanent one in the summer.
The 22-year-old is currently out on loan at Championship club Bristol City, where he’s playing his role in their bid for promotion.
According to the Sun, the creative playmaker is set to be sold for £4million at the end of the season to Bristol City.
The report details that the Englishman has done enough to convince Bristol City manager Lee Johnson into signing him on a permanent basis.
Palmer has had a host of loan spells away from Stamford Bridge already since coming through the academy.
The versatile attacker has had spells with Huddersfield Town, Derby County, Blackburn Rovers and now Bristol City.
He’s never made a senior appearance for Chelsea during his career and it’s no surprise that he could now be heading out the exit door for good.
It seems like a move that is in the best interests of the player and he’s now in a first-team picture at Bristol City, whereas the likelihood of him making a Chelsea breakthrough is slim.
But there are still some quality loanees out on spells away from the Blues and they are going to be needed if the transfer ban enforced by FIFA is not overturned by the club’s appeal.
