Chelsea midfielder Jeremie Boga has joined Birmingham City on loan for the rest of the season.
The young playmaker spent the last two seasons on loan at Rennes and Granada and he is now set for a spell in the Championship.
Boga impressed fans during Chelsea’s pre-season tour in Asia and there were calls from some supporters for him to stay at the club this season but the high competition for places mean he wouldn’t have been able to play regularly.
As a result the club has opted to send him out on loan to gain more experience in order to aid his development.
The Ivory Coast international featured for Chelsea in the opening day defeat to Burnley but spent just 18 minutes on the pitch, after Gary Cahill was given his marching orders.
He didn’t feature in Chelsea’s next two games but will now get the chance to show his qualities at Birmingham.
Boga is the 28th player Chelsea have sent out on loan this summer, a huge number I must say and the Blues have been criticized by fans of other clubs for its loan policy.
However, the Blues have no intention of cutting down the number of players they send out on loan, why should they really when it has served them well over the years.
Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen are good testimonies of the loan policy, others who didn’t manage to break into the first team like were moved on for profits.
