Though you may have missed it int the flurry of transfer activity yesterday, Chelsea sent eleven players out on loan yesterday.

Their policy of stockpiling players has yet to pay real dividends, but it is a tactic they seem to be persisting with.

Out went the likes of Juan Cuadrado (on a somewhat ridiculous three-year loan deal with Juventus), forward Loic Rémy and defender Matt Miazga, none of whom were given much of an opportunity to impress new manager Antonio Conte.

The deals yesterday took to an incredible 38 the number of players at Stamford Bridge sent away on loan this summer, Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach also taking up their option of a second year for highly-rated defender Andreas Christensen.

To put that into context, fellow Premier League side Hull City signed three players yesterday and still don’t have enough senior players to fill a substitutes bench.

The list is a combination of youngster and unwanted (yet pricey) fringe player, while a number of those players are currently somewhere between the two:

Some of the players listed here may yet still make it at Stamford Bridge, though the more likely scenario is that they will all be sent away permanently when their value increases to a satisfactory level.
