Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has made decisions regarding the immediate futures of eight youngsters this summer.

The Blues are currently undergoing a transfer embargo that rules them out of bringing in new signings until next summer.
And the club are reluctant to lose more stars for good after already letting the likes of Ola Aina, Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata go.

But a handful of young prospects at the Stamford Bridge outfit will be allowed to strut their stuff for other clubs.

Prominent Chelsea Twitter account @CareFreeYouth pinpointed the eight players Frank has allowed to depart on a loan basis.

They have been named as Marc Guehi, Conor Gallagher, Dujon Sterling, Trevoh Chalobah, Lewis Baker, Ike Ugbo, Lucas Piazon and Izzy Brown.

Of the eight, three started for Chelsea in their recent 1-1 draw with Bohemians in a pre-season friendly match.

The trio of Sterling, Guehi and Igbo all made the starting eleven in Lampard’s first match in charge but they have now been sent back to London.

All six participated in the match versus the Dublin-based outfit, who managed to net a late equaliser to deny the Chelsea manager the first win.

Sterling, Chalobah, Baker, Ugbo, Brown and Piazon all spent time away from Chelsea last year with differing results.

Youngsters 20-year-old Chalobah and 19-year-old Sterling both impressed at Ipswich and Coventry respectively but Brown and Baker both struggled at Leeds United.

Piazon is 25 but has never played for Chelsea, spending the latter part of last campaign on loan to Chievo.

There are high hopes for Conor, who won Academy Player of the Year, while Ike failed to hit any sort of goalscoring form – scoring just once at Scunthorpe last campaign.
