Chelsea to send Wallace out on loan

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that talented defender Wallace will go out on loan this season.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that talented defender Wallace will go out on loan this season.

The 19-year old Brazilian right-back signed with the Blues in January but did not arrive at Stamford Bridge until this summer after remaining on loan with former club Fluminense.

Despite impressing in pre-season, Wallace will again be sent away for further first team development as Mourinho looks to him for the future.

"He's a very good player - but he won't be staying with us because we have (Branislav) Ivanovic and (Cesar) Azpilicueta for the same position,” said Mourinho.

"Because he is non-EU we'll not get the work permit, it'll be too early, so he'll go on loan for a season.

"We'll get the best option for him, in Europe. We want him to adapt.

"He's very mature for his age, comfortable with the ball. He has the quality of a Brazilian full-back, likes to attack and create.

"So we'll see the best of him: he has talent and is one more investment for this club, a good investment, because the kid is a very good player."
