Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits Kenedy and Charly Musonda could be sent out on-loan again in January.

Conte emphasised the player resources already at the club’s disposal are being considered just as much as possible new signings, including the young squad members and players who have been on loan.

“We have a lot of young players and I trust in them,” he said. “Ola Aina, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Nathaniel Chalobah, and also we have Zouma returned.

“Kenedy and Charly Musonda came back from their loans at Watford and Real Betis because they didn’t play a lot and for this reason it is important for them to stay with us these weeks to evaluate the best situation for them and the team.

“It is important also to work with these type of young players to try find the right solutions at home, and if this is not possible, it is important to look around to find the solution.”
