Crystal Palace, Everton target Chelsea defender Levi Colwill

Chelsea face a question mark over the future of defender Levi Colwill.

Everton boss Frank Lampard hopes his old club help him out with a loan agreement for the classy defender, 19, who was a key part of Huddersfield's push to the play-off final.

He is due to go back to Chelsea and may be needed for their first-team squad if it is drastically changed next season.

But Everton want to offer him Prem football after staying up, which gives them a chance of success.

Lampard was given Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori when he was boss at Derby and his relationships are still strong after his time in charge of Chelsea.

Crystal Palace like Colwill but may not be able to offer him first-team football next season as he is more of a long-term project, says The Sun.

Colwill has enjoyed an excellent season at the John Smith's Stadium - even being dubbed the 'new John Terry' - especially after choosing to wear the same No 26 shirt.
