Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas has joined Middlesbrough on loan today.
The 21-year-old defender, who played in the famous 2-0 victory over Liverpool last season, was initially sent out on loan to Bundesliga outfit FC Cologne, but having failed to get a single minute of game time, Chelsea decided to terminate his loan deal.
Having not played enough football this season it would have been hard for Kalas to make a break through into the Chelsea squad, so the Blues didn’t waste any time to send him on loan again, this time to Boro.
A picture of Kalas in the Boro kit has been posted on social media. Although Chelsea haven’t confirmed yet officially, but we’re can fairly guess the deal is all but done.
The 19 year-old was a part of the Blues’ successful U-21 side which won the Premier League last season, and his efforts were rewarded when Jose Mourinho gave him a call-up to the first team. He was given his debut on the final day of last season, coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 win at Cardiff.
