Despite sending Ross Barkley out on loan to Aston Villa recently, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is still pushing to trim the squad even further.

The future of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fikayo Tomori and Hudson-Odoi is still undecided with the Blues willing to listen to loan offer for the trio.

During his press conference this afternoon, Lampard was asked if Loftus-Cheek, Tomori and Hudson-Odoi could head out on loan.

He said: “With every player in the squad, with the situation of a loan you have to consider what’s best for the player, what’s best for the club first and foremost.

“And then see how it stacks up. So with all those three players I would take those things into consideration.

“But I haven’t got an answer for you on any of those three. I have a good relationship with them all, speak honestly with them, again that’s one that we’ll broach player by player in the next few days.

“Once the window shuts every player that will be here will be used within our squad, because it’s a long season and a lot of competitions coming up. And we’ll know more on Monday.”
