Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is set to join Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Newcastle’s offer for Loftus-Cheek is currently under consideration by Antonio Conte.

Chelsea are reportedly waiting to see if a Premier League club comes in for the 20-year-old midfielder as they would rather see him gain top-flight experience.

Loftus-Cheek has made just three appearances this season and two of those came in the EFL Cup wins over Bristol Rovers and Leicester.

His nine minutes of league action this term came as a late substitute in October’s 3-0 win over the Foxes.
