Serial Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon: I am tired of this…

Lucas Piazon admits he is growing sick and tired of constantly being sent out on loan.

The 22-year-old Brazilian forward joined Fulham for a season-long spell on deadline day which is to be his fifth loan since 2013.

Piazon is determined to star for the Cottagers in the Championship so he can return to Stamford Bridge and finally force his way into the first team.

“I hope I can do a good job at Fulham," Piazon told the Daily Mail.

“It's a good club and a traditional club.

“They have started the season well. Then I have to stay for more than one year at a club who can see me as their player and not a player from Chelsea who will one day go back to Chelsea.

“I'm tired of moving abroad. One, two, three loans, maybe that's enough. It's time for me to stay somewhere more than one year.

“When they know you'll stay whatever happens, people look at you with different eyes.

“If I had the chance to go for more than one season I'd do it."

Piazon, who has previously spent time with Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt and Reading, added: '"It makes no sense to go on loan all the time.

“It is not good for any player in my experience - or the experience of the other boys. I don't see it as a positive thing any more. To be in a different place every year is not good for me at 22.

“It's difficult to get a place in the team. They have their own players. You do your best, try to get a place in the squad, minutes on the pitch, score and create goals. That's all you can do."
