Newton said, “It’s all about the players development for us. There are things that are important to us. Firstly, the player’s development on and off the pitch. Do they improve as a player, get more clever, more independent and things like that?”

“The second and equally important point: Is our player actually playing minutes. If this is not the case, then their development is in danger. Then we have to look at another club.”

Dominic Solanke is currently the only Chelsea loanee who has impressed this season, with Lewis Baker and Isaiah Brown appearing mostly from the bench, while Nathan and Danilo Pantic have barely featured at all.
