Antonio Conte looks to be willing to allow another of Chelsea’s talented youngsters to go out on loan this summer in order to gain first team experience.

According to the Express, Ike Ugbo has been given permission to join a club on loan next season, with Leeds United, Bristol City, and Wolves all eager to give the attacker an opportunity to show his worth.

The 18-year-old is one of the brightest jewels in the academy crown, where he has scored 60 goals in three seasons.

Although the Express report that there is interest from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, it is expected that the player will remain in England to continue his development.

Last season, Tammy Abraham enjoyed a successful spell at Championship side Bristol City where the striker scored 26 goals in 42 appearances for the Robins. Abraham has since gone on to secure a loan deal at Swansea City where he will be tested again some of the Premier League’s top teams.

It is hoped that the Chelsea loan system will continue to produce players capable of competing in the Premier League. Could Ike Ugbo be the next loan star to shine?
