Christian Atsu set to return to Chelsea in January


Chelsea are set to recall Christian Atsu this January after a failed loan spell at Bournemouth.

The highly rated 23-year-old winger was loaned out to Eddie Howe’s side this summer, but Atsu has failed to impress at his new club.

Atsu has made just two appearances for the Cherries so far this season and the Premier League champions are keen to end his loan spell due to the lack of match action.

According to ESPN, Atsu will return to Chelsea soon due to a clause present in his loan contract which allows the parent club to bring him back if he does not get enough first team action.

The report also states that Chelsea are likely to loan him out again and there are several clubs interested in the winger’s services.

Atsu is the second player who is set to return after a failed loan spell. Patrick Bamford is also on his way back to Chelsea after the lack of opportunities at Crystal Palace.
